1920s French Cotton Slip, Sun Dress, With Crochet Trim - Bust 91 cm
This beautiful French slip or petticoat with crochet trim and embroidered monogram from the 1920s would make a crisply cool and romantic sun dress. The A-line slip has an inverted pleat in the back for ease of movement and a delightful hand crocheted band across the top worked in very fine thread. The owner's initials - CV (I like to think of her as Christine Vincent!!) - are embroidered over the left breast. The straps are fancy cotton tape and are not adjustable. Above knee length and handmade with care - French seams.
Bust 91 cm (36")
Waist to 91 cm (36")
Hips to 101 cm (40")
Length from the underarm is 69 cm (27")
The straps are quite short - 27.5 cm (10.75") from front to back. These could be easily replaced with ribbon straps if longer straps are needed.
