1920s Wedding Dress,robe De Style,champagne Silk W French Knot Embroidery,full :
$128


Exquisite antique wedding dress from the mid 1920's. Pale champagne or ecru hued silk is lighter than air, and is embellished with beautiful hand embroidered French knots that look like tiny flowers, which are sprinkled on the bodice, skirt and hem. This is the coveted Robe de Style silhouette, and is an iconic 1920s Flapper era dress. Full skirt has a scalloped hem, and a removable silk panel that snaps in place in front, and can be removed to show off your underskirt or lace slip. Dropped waist, sleeveless and the bodice has a straight line from shoulder to waistline. Longer in back than in the front, and the embroidery goes around the entire hem in front, and partially on the sides (non in back). The silk has a wonderful luster and is thin and fairy light, yet has a great "body" and feel. I was told when I purchased this many years ago that it was worn as a wedding dress. Of course, it easily serves as a formal dress for any warm weather occasion or evening wear. There is no slip or underskirt for this dress. The dress has some damage, but it is clean and fresh, no stains, and most of it is very good. Selling this one "as found", for the beautiful silk and French knot embroidery. Or to restore and wear, or for study. Thank you! .

The length from shoulder top to deep scallop in back is 45" long, and 41" long in front. Bust measured from underarms across is 34", and the seam at the dropped waist is 34". I measured the dropped waist at 18" down from the shoulder line.

CONDITION is GOOD on most of it, but is does have flaws, and damage to the back bodice that make it unwearable as it is. The good points are that the dress is clean and fresh looking, with no soiling, no fading or color streaks, no darkening of the color, no odors, no stains. Hem is excellent. French knot embroidery is very good....1 tiny hole in the embroidered area on the bottom center of the bodice. Seams are good. No underarm staining. I found a few pin prick tiny holes in the bodice, and 1 side has several very tiny and short slits/splits in the silk....the "V" insert on the bodice has a few slits also (could be removed) ...I found no tears or rips or holes in the skirt. Color is even and is the original color. The worst thing is that the back of the bodice is badly damaged, with en entire side shattered as it was stored with this part exposed to the air. PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS. The photos are part of the description. The dress may have a tiny hole, loose thread, or split that I missed, but I looked it over well. the dress needs restoration. Comes from a smoke free, pet free home and has been well stored. Offered with a low opening offer and . I do not guarantee this will fit you.... I am selling this as described, for it rarity, and for study, collecting. etc. Not perfect, has flaws noted, and damage. Selling as found, well described.
