Nice 1930's Embroidered Dress

From the seller:

Absolutely beautiful Antique 1920's Peasant Dress. Sheer cotton cream/ivory gauze fabric w/ intricate french bobbin lace & embroidery throughout. Smocked; drop-waist line. Closes with metal snaps on side (all are present). Modest v-neckline.

Era: 1920's

Material: 100% Cotton (sheer gauze)

Condition: Excellent ready-to-wear condition. Considering this item's age, it only shows light signs of aging/wear/minor discoloration. Found a few scattered very tiny stains & a couple very small holes. stitching loose under one arm, but not torn.


Bust= 20.5 inches across (x2)

Waist= 14 inches across (x2) with approx 1 inch of stretch due to smocking

Hips= 18 - 19 inches (x2)

Length= 47 inches from back of neck to hem of dress

From Me:

The sleeves give away the 1930's for the age of this dress. The waist line isn't dropped - it's actually normal. The blouse area is meant to be a bit puffy. I'd wear something similar today if it was warm enough, honestly.
