Item specifics


1920-1929 (20s)


embroidered chiffon

Vintage Type:

True Vintage

This is a vintage 1920's flapper gown with oodles of tape lace and even more embroidery.

Please use the zoom to examine this one of a kind genuine dress and all of it's assets. The listing also includes a silk slip from the 1920's as well, although I don't believe that this particular slip goes with this dress, the colors are agreeable and the condition is excellent.

This is a Buy It Now, if the listing is not completed by Dec. 20th shipping will be unavailable until after the first of the year.

The dress is not perfect- there are holes in the shoulders and a mend in the sleeve. The neckline is damaged in the back.

I do believe there is a solution to this, however, and if you sew well or know someone famliar with antique dresses that does alterations, you are in luck.

The dress has two long ties, if they were shortened  and removed the material could be used to fix the back of the collar. Should you remove the sleeves- and make this a sleeveless dress a collar could be made for the back in "sailor fashion" that would cover the mend at the back near the neck.

Now onto the really neat parts of this fantastic art deco dress.

This is all hand embroidered. The long V neck has leaves and at the top of the shoulders is smocking. Circular coils are a pattern that runs through the dress and the ones below the shoulders are intricately embroidered as is each leaf on this dress. There aaaais one small hole in the back that can be worked into the embroidery close by and another 1/4" one that needs mending.

Now it gets really interesting. In the front of the dress are two long plain panels flanked on each side by threaded tape lace. The coiled pattern appears on it and it goes around the circumference of the dress. All of this is in BEAUTIFUL condition.  

Measurements for the dress are unavailable until I can find my tape measure or get to the store to get a new one. Anyone 60 or over can sure relate... when I do find it, I will go back and list the measurements.

I ran out of room to show pictures, if you are a serious buyer, just email me with your questions and I will send you some more.

Like antique clothing? This collection of dresses and accessories is vast I hope you keep watching. 
If you have 5 or less positive feedback, please email before you bid, as I recently have had several winning bidders who felt paying was an option and not a commitment.
I accept PayPal, and ship within two business days, and often the same day as payment. I am happy to combine items when possible. Shipping for this item is for the continental US. International bidders please note- I do not mark forms as gift. I do not end auctions early.  I prefer but do not insist upon shipping Priority Mail for international sales as it carries insurance and can be tracked. Customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I do not charge handling fees.
A word about my auctions- I do not use reserves- for me, it is unfair to dangle a carrot in front of someone and then go "oopsie" just foolin'. 
I list at all hours to accommodate people in all time zones. If you are interested in an item and will be away from the computer, you might want to just pop in that bid and set your limit. (ie: life gets busy!)
For my repeat overseas customers, I will hold onto your item for up to a month as you fill a box with other items you bid on. Then ship the filled box. This saves you on postage which will be affixed on the full box, not individual items. I just ask that you pay for each item as you win it, so as to not back me up. Just keep in mind you will still have to pay customs fees on each item.

 Please remember almost all of the garments I sell are 120 years old to 40 years old. They were made for one individual long ago before the Big Mac was invented and not all bodies are the same. While I strive to be totally accurate in listing any imperfections, occasionally a small thing is missed. About a third of my customers are repeat customers, so they already know a great deal in a unique antique item. I hope you will too!
