Sweet 1920's Dress with Big Flowers on the hip











From the seller:

DATING TO THE 1920’S

FASHIONED OF A SHEER BROWN SILK CHIFFON

PLEATS ON THE SLEEVES

THE DROP WAIST IS BELTED IN CHIFFON, SIDE TRIMMED IN IRIDESCENT COLORED SILK FLORALS

THE DRESS WAS ORIGINALLY FULLY LINED IN A YELLOW SILK CHIFFON, THE SKIRTING INTERIOR REMAINS, I PERSONALLY WOULD REMOVE

From Me:

1921 Fashion Plate


I can't decide if I really like this or not. I love the use of lace and trims and the sleeves but the color just looks off to me. Maybe it's just faded and that's why I'm hung up on the color? Not sure

  1. I think with the yellow lining in place, the color would be better.

    But I love the silly thing the way it is. Soooo not my era, but cool and sexy looking. Reminds me of the nightgowns my mom bought for me in my late teens. (I still think those were hints I ought to get married, but she denies it.) ;-)

    1. Maybe. I think it might just need a dip in a bath of oxyclean for an hour or two...
