The Perfect 1920's Christmas Dress

From the seller:


1920s 20s Antique Vintage Great Gatsby Flapper Beaded Red Silk Velvet Plunging Party Dress

Truly one of a kind! Rare beaded red silk velvet flapper dress. Lined with fabric that feels like silk. Sophisticated draped front, shoulder criss cross bands, medallion style beading at the hips. There are no labels present but I wouldn't be surprised if this was a labeled garment.

CONDITION: Excellent . Well preserved. No issues to point out. Do not miss out!

Measured inside. Measurements approximated.

Bust(approx.): 36/37
Waist (approx.): dropped waist 40/42
Length: shoulder to hem 45, shoulder to dropped waist 21

(measured flat, waist is snug, bust approximated, leave room according to your preferences, all in inches)

From Me:


I was going to go 1930's this year for Christmas but I could totally do 1920's again if I made this dress.

Remember, no drool on the dresses, ladies and gentlemen!  (I added the BIG version of the pictures.  Just click on any of the images but not on the pinterest symbol to see some of the amazing details)

    1. I honestly think the back and side draping is more lovely - but that might be because if how it's sagging in the front.
