From the seller:
This is a vintage 1920's flapper dress in delicate condition. It has beautiful beadwork and rhinestone (or paste) details throughout the dress. It has a number of rips and tears, the fabric is frail and thin especially with the weight of the beadwork. The length is 41" and the waist is around 28 to 29".
I really think this is an overtunic based on the waistline. It just doesn't match with what we know about the 1920's - it's way too high.

I'm thinking something similar to this originally but the underdress (with sleeves) was lost over the years.
