Late 1920's/ Early 1930's Black Rayon Dress

From the seller:

Beautiful mid 1920's dress! Rich black, dress is made out of a thin but slightly stiff rayon, box cut, dress has a bow tie neck trim and wrist trim, drop waist with a flair skirt, side hook-and-eye.

Dress shows light wear, has not been cleaned, but in overall really nice shape. There are a few broken stitches in the back of the neck trim, one small seam rip near the one under arm and a tear in the lower side hip {see images} other than that, nice shape!

Size: XSmall-Small
Label: None

Bust 32
Waist 30

Hips 34
Length 39

From Me:

Seriously, I would wear this style to work tomorrow. A nice pair of bright pink tights and my black mary janes and I'm be happy.

Edit: The more I look at this dress, the more I think it might be just a bit later than I originally believed. Probably around that late 1920's/early 1930's cusp. The waist is still long, but the cut of the skirt and some of the other details hint and stuff you'll see more of in the 1930's.
