Mid 1920's Summer Dress

From the seller:

Please note that photos were taken with and without a black slip to show the detail...It is not included...Any color lining or slip can be used if to be worn
Lightweight and sheer cotton batiste chemise from the 1920s
Embellished with strips of Battenburg tape lace on the shoulders, neckline and down the front and back
Pintucks in the front and back
Crochet dangles are attached to the ends of faggoting pieces in the front...One is missing, but there is an extra one on the same side that can be moved
Three rows of tulle ruffles around the bottom
Small hidden mother of pearl buttons down the center back
Three crocheted buttons on the lace in the center back

There are small tears in the fabric in the front and 3 under the left arm (see closeup photos)
The lace has a few breaks in the connector bars here and there
Otherwise, in good condition

These measurements are taken flat with a flexible measuring tape...You have to be smaller than the measurements to allow room for ease:

There is no size tag, fits an XL as is, but the sides can be taken in to fit
Bust: 44 inches
Waist: 44 inches
Hip: 44 inches
Length from shoulder: 42 inches

From Me:
1924 Fashion Plate

Most likely, this would have been worn with a very colorful slip but it could have easily been worn with a white one.
