Vintage 1920's Mocha Dress Gatsby Downton Wearable Gorgeous:
VINTAGE 1920'S MOCHA DRESS GATSBY DOWNTON WEARABLE GORGEOUS.Amazing knife pleats--still sharp--kick up your heels in this one!
Downton Abbey movie is coming and you don't want to be caught unprepared. This dress is carefully wearable. The lace is is excellent condition in some areas but is stretched out in others. Please look carefully at photos. The dress is straight cut--there is no waistline per se. It is meant to hang loosely, so even though it measures 17" across at the waist and hip, the dress needs to fit you LOOSELY.I would say if you are a size 4-6 that would be ideal. It is a SMALL. The lining under the lace is non-stretchy--be careful.Vintage clothing fans will know what I mean. The dress has to be 90 years old at least and is in wonderful shape. It's an example of a '20's dress with no beading--beading tended to rip and weaken the lovely dresses over time. This one survived pretty well indeed!It goes on over your head--no buttons, zippers, or fastenings. There is a small amount of shattering to the underslip, but the photos show the condition of the lace which is what people will see if you choose to wear it.It is also amazing as a a display piece on a dress form, as you can see.Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
