1920's Black Dress

From Karen:
I have attached photos of a 1920s knee-length black Rayon dress. There are no openings, it is a pullover. The collar has pleated, pinked trim all around. The sleeves have a small cuff which used to have snap openings. Only one snap remains. The dropped waist is beautifully ruched, ending in three layers of pleated, pinked trim applied to the skirt on the front only. The back has a small belt attached at the side seams. The measurements are 19 bust and waist, measured flat. This is a fun dress. There are no labels but it is beautifully made. It does have a few small holes in the fabric

From Me:

I have a similar one from a few years earlier. These are neat in person because we have such similar dresses today - almost 100 years later!

  1. Sorry for the blurry photos; I thought I had checked those before I sent them...
