Lovely True Vintage 1920s Apricot Chiffon Flapper Dance Dress Chevron Embroidery For Sale
From a recent estate comes this wonderful TRUE VINTAGE 1920s flapper style dance dress. A lovely apricot/peach chiffon, the dress features embroidered chevron details and a flirty, bias-cut skirt.
In overall wonderful condition, the dress measures 16" across from pit to pit, and 29" from the top of bodice to the hem. These dresses are usually found in shreds, but this has no major structural disintegration that would prevent the dress from being worn or displayed. There are four issues to be aware of:
One of the stitched, vertical lines where the back panels are piece together has separated. There is seam allowance so this can be reattached with ease and no visible "repair" showing.
A 4.5" separation between the bodice and where the skirt is attached. Because this runs through part of the embroidery section, the repair can be easily hidden.
As shown in the photo the top part of the "flame" on one of the embroidery pieces is missing the tiny black threads that run randomly through it, but could easily be added back.
Finally, there is a small hole as shown in pictures - about 5'8" long below one of the rounded embroidered designs where the skirt attaches to the bodice.
I have attempted to describe the dress to the best of my ability including flaws. Please contact me if you have specific questions that I can answer to help you make your decision to offer on this dress.
These 1920s-era dresses are so hard-to-find and don't come up for sale too often in this nice condition. You won't be disappointed!

9/9/13: Please note: the last issue I mentioned should say there is a 5/8" hole, NOT a 5' 8" hole - oops...
