Pale Green Sheer 1930's Dress

From the seller:

A classic flapper girl era dress in a sheer green. The embroidered flowers. Underneath a slip.
Shoulder to bottom front 50 inches
Shoulder to bottom sides about 55 inches
Under armpits across chest 18 inches
Waist about 31 inches
The embroidery work is machine sewn.
There's age spotting and age yellowing in places. Maybe a bite or two to be safe :)
Circa 1920/30s era

From Me:

Very clearly 1930's.


  1. Where is everybody getting this wicker mannequins?? There were two being used at my local museum, slowly wearing away at the thin silk and lace...sigh

    1. They were popular in the late 1980's/early 1990's as part of a "Victorian Look". Think Laura Ashely.
