Sunglasses needed to look at this 1920's BRIGHT dress

From the seller:

Hello and welcome to our auction! Up for your consideration is a 1920s 30s Womens Pink & Green Embroidered Flapper Party Dress. This dress is in good condition, but has a number of tears and stains, as pictured. All the same, this dress is a beautiful color and features great embroidery work. Dress feels to be an early synthetic material of sorts. Again, this dress is being sold AS IS and are being sold as inspiration or collectors pieces. Size is a Large, but please see below for exact measurements. Thanks for looking, and be sure to check out our other auctions for more great vintage items!


Bust (Measured from armpit to armpit then doubled)- 15 inches across; 30 inch chest

Waist - 17 inches across; 34 inch waist

Shoulders (Measured straight across the back)- 13 inches

Length - 38 1/2 inches

Dress opening - 66 inches

From Me:

I warned you in the title. This is a seriously brightly colored dress- despite the fact the colors are more normally associated with the later half of the 20th C (Day glo daisies, anyone?), the fabric, cut, and style of this all suggest a very solid 1920's dating.
