Lovely 1920's Slip

From the seller:
Adorable 20's Deco Embroidered Boudoir Frock of palest pastel green Silk Crepe Bodice

with Very Full gathered palest pastel pink Silk Gossamer Chiffon Skirt,

& pretty eyelet Val Lace with pink satin ribbon for trim & straps.

The Embroidery in front has a Lovely Spray of Silk Embroidered wild Roses, hand done in shades of Rose

& pink with Bronze leaves & stems,

all hand done in very muted pastel shades, Victorian Royal Society type design & very tiny silk work.

Pullover style with no openings., side net inserts.

I would consider this Garment to be a medium in size.

Measurements are EXACT taken flat & doubled:

Bust 36"

Hip 36"

Length 33"

(model is 5'10" so the dress may hang longer on a shorter person)


No real Issues, a couple of pinholes and a tiny mark or two. There is general very slight overall surface wear as you would expect on a garment of this age.

Otherwise it is Sound, has been dry cleaned, pressed and is ready to wear. No discoloration or other stains

From me:

This was probably meant to go under another dress and not as a "boudoir frock".
