1920's Teal Dress

From the seller:

You are bidding on a genuine 1920s flapper dress. This is for a serious collector. There are some condition issues- there is a tear in the skirt as well as wear in the fabric near each underarm (see photos). The dress looks large, but the fit is actually extremely small. If you can see in the photos, the dress does not fit the model in the hips (it should be pulled a bit farther down). There is an attached slip which needs some love and care- one strap is broken and the other is on its way out. There is also some staining on the slip in the underarm area.The beading on the first layer is extraordinary. I'm sure that something fantastic can be done with the piece to make it wearable again.

Please see photos and ask any questions PRIOR to bidding.

Approx. measurements:
bust (of slip)- 36"
waist- 30"
hips- 31"
length from shoulder- 43" at longest part of beaded layer

From Me:

I love the color of this dress. I just want to put a big pink bow on the left hip!
