Lovely 1920s Taupe-grey Silk Crepe Lace Paneled Flapper Dress Gatsby Era Sz Mdm For Sale

Lovely 1920s Taupe-grey Silk Crepe Lace Paneled Flapper Dress Gatsby Era Sz Mdm

NOTE: This dress was listed yesterday, June 8th but I had to end that listing on Sunday June 9th as there was an error in the listing. I have made the correction and relisted the dress the same day, Sunday June 9th. Thank you for all the previous offers, and I apologize.

A lovely antique 1920's silk crepe and lace dress, in a skin flattering color of a soft taupe gray. Color is not quite gray, not quite beige, sort of in between. Front and back have beautiful panels of cutwork style lace with twisted silk threads, and the sides have gorgeous soft flowers made of silk crepe, and a floaty lower panel that swirls as you move. Flutter sleeves. Dates from the later 1920's, circa 1925 to 1929, a wonderful column style that is a nearly straight line from shoulder to hem, getting slightly wider at the bottom hem area and slightly wider at the bust than the hips. The silk crepe is light and fine and has delicate picot edging, a very French touch! This style skims over the figure, and is very forgiving of any figure flaws while being very complimentary to your assets. Not a tiny size, seems an average size with a fairly roomy bust. See measurements below. Straight from the Great Gatsy Flapper era, and in overall good condition. See more details below. ! Thank you!

This next photo shows the left side of the dress, with the snaps (poppers) UNsnapped, and the side open. As you can see, when unsnapped, the dress is open from the shoulder to the hipline at the silk fabric rose. The rose has snaps under it also, 3 of which go horizontally. The dress closes neatly and all snaps are secure and working.

MEASUREMENTS: I cannot determine the actual "size" of this dress as it is antique and a loose style. The length from shoulder top to hem is 45" long in back...(deep hem inside is about 8 1/2" deep)... Bust measured from underarms seams across and doubled is 44" to 46"... and the dropped waist where the flowers are attached is approx 40 to 42" around (measured 21" to 22"down from the shoulder top). Shoulders are not defined, but are approx 16" across to the flutter slits on each side. All measurements were taken on the outer layer of the dress, laying flat. This dress obviously had an underslip, (not included) which would have been a slightly smaller size and the looser dress skimmed over that. Please ask if you need more specific information, thank you. Fit is not guaranteed.

CONDITION is GOOD on most of it, but it does have flaws, most to the arm/sleeve area (sleeves could be removed). The dress was well stored in an antique steamer trunk in a private home estate, never put in an attic or basement, and is clean, not soiled or dirty looking, no odors.... A few tiny tan spots on the lace panels, but only a few.. The silk and the lace is not dry, not brittle or shattering, the silk is supple and the lace "brides" (connecting threads) are silky and not torn or breaking. Underarms and sleeve areas have yellowing, damage, and tears, as shown...Except for the sleeves, the silk is not dry or shattering, it is supple. There may be a tiny hole in the lace I missed, but I found no large holes or rips, only some mild fraying of the silk at the cutwork (lace) in a few places, only seen from very very up close. The picot edges on the silk crepe are very good to excellent. Seams on the dress are secure and very good. Hems are very good, ..no wear or tears.......The area by the back of the neck and shoulder blades, and a bit along the front collar, have aged in color, a gradual but noticed color change....this may come out with a gentle soaking if it is a detraction to you...PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS. The photos are part of the description. I found 1 tiny hole on one of the side drapes, but the hole hides in the folds. The dress may have a tiny hole, loose thread, etc., that I missed, but I looked it over well. ..... Except for the sleeves, it is in what I think is quite good condition.... The lace panels front and back are really very good.....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.... PLEASE ASK if you need more information. I am selling this as described..."as found".... it is wonderful for its rarity, for study, collecting. etc. We do not guarantee the wearability of antique garments. Not perfect, has flaws noted..... Selling as found, well described. NO RETURNS if I miss some tiny thing, returns will be considered only if I have made some gross error in my description. International shipping is non refundable on returns. Thank you.

PLEASE.... ask if you need more info, as there will be NO RETURNS unless I have made a gross error in my description. I may have missed a tiny thing, but I do try to look for everything as best I can. Please, ask if you need more information, photos or measurements BEFORE you offer. Thank you.

SHIPPING........We ship from the West Coast. We normally ship every 3-4 days. All parcels are well packed, with special care given to antique clothing...shipped USPS with insurance and tracking. Shipping may be less than shown for the West Coast USA, and shipping may be $2.00 more than shown for International shipping if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.

NOTE: I had to stop this sale previously as there was an error in the description. There is NO tearing on any silk wrap, and this dress does not even have a silk "wrap",... that was a "left over" line of text from a previous sale 2 months ago that somehow got left in the description. I ended the sale on Sunday morning but relisted it immediately afterward. My apologies.
