Lavender and Pink Leaf Print 1920s 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 are darts all around the drop waist and they are reinforced with some hand-stitching. I bought it this way. The lines around the neck are so incredibly 20's and these pictures don't do it justice. This cotton is really thin and sheer and just beautiful. They just don't make fabric like this anymore.

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.

Thank you for the inquiries. Measurements are:
20s lavender floral
Vintage embroidered patch fix in front -
Slight stain on the skirt in back
Shoulder- 14 1/2
Bust- 36
Waist - 36
Hip- 50

From Me:

I love this because the print and even the style looks like something you'd see in the stores today. The waistline of the dress reminds me of this 1920s pattern:

The dress itself appears to be a home sewn garment. Check out the hem!
