Pretty 1920's Dress with sleeves!

From the seller:

Antique/Vintage original authentic 1920,s flapper formal party dress
a rare larger size
a truly beautiful and exquisite looking flapper dress
rose pink rayon crepe fabric
the design is amazing true flapper
semi sheer bodice with the original floral decoupage attached
classic dropped waist
ecru antique lace trims around the neck and sleeve edges
the sleeves fasten with early poppers at the wrists
the waist has a beautiful sash bow with the original brass buckle at the centre of the bow
the skirt area has layers of small box pleated frills
a truly decadent dress of the period that is completely and utterly wearable
it has one minor flaw an approx 2" tear under the left armpit , this can easily be stitched and mended as the fabric is still good and strong, or you can leave it alone as you can,t see this when you are wearing it
apart from the tear mentioned the condition is superb for a dress of this era
it would make a fabulous museum or collectors piece or simply to wear for yourself as it has plenty of wear left in it

should fit a modern uk size 12 - 14 nicely or a u.s 10 - 12 , please do check the measurements by comparing to another similar garment that you own
chest 40"
waist 38"
hip 40"
length 43"
outer sleeve 23"

From Me:

Given that tear, the fabric does not look "good and strong". /facepalm
