Late 1920's Dress

From the seller:

This vintage black silk chiffon ecru lace shawl collar cape drop waist dress dates from the 1920s. It is made of a black sheer silk chiffon fabric, with an ecru lace trim applique collar. This stunning dress has a loose fitting drop waist style, with an attached large shawl collar cape, V tie sash front neckline and long full skirt. It is sheer, unlined and would need a slip underneath. The dress measures 57 inches long, with 40 inch hips, a 36 inch waist and 40 inch bust. There is a tiny pin hole on the shoulder collar, under the arm and several tiny frayed holes along the bottom skirt hemline which could be shortened.

From Me:

My guess is this is from the later 1920's rather than earlier based on the neckline.
