Cute Cut 1920's Long Sleeved with Scalloped Hemmed Dress
From the seller:
This is so gorgeous! I bought this in a vintage clothing store in the mid-1980's and only wore it a couple times. It has been in storage in a climate-controlled, acid-free environment since about 1988. This is in pristine condition for its age. there is a rip on the seam on one underarm as pictured. Classic 1920's dress - the real thing. So many layers and such wonderful detail. This is one of the most spectacular dresses I have ever seen and it is the real thing!!
This is truly an incredible find! It has been very well preserved and cared for. It is approximately a size 6. I don't sew, and am hesitant to post measurements as I don't do those very well.
Please ask any questions before bidding. Remember that pictures are part of the description, and that with any vintage item, it is not brand new. Thank you.
thanks for your inquiries. I looked it over carefully for defects - there are vintage repairs in the armpits and a seam is also repairs on the arm that has come loose. This is one of the very best 1920's dresses I have ever seen! A little discoloration around a couple bottom buttons. Added pics. and here are the measurements
Pink crepe dress
Vintage repairs on slight tear in both armpits
Arm to shoulder seam is repaired
To me, it looks terracotta, not pink. I love the cut of the dress but not the color. I think I'd redo it in pastels of cream, blue, and pink. Still, it's a perfect example of one of the 1920's day dresses.
