Metallic brocaded flapper day dress, 1920s
The stylish dress still has a lot of life in it. Here is the flapper look without the high price of a museum quality piece. The two-piece dress consists of a slip and an over blouse. The peach silk crepe top of the slip, which has stains, does not appear to be original; the velvet skirt has been altered and shortened.
The over blouse is made from metallic brocaded silk crepe. Unfortunately, much of the metallic gold on the sleeves and shoulders has worn off, but you still get a great Deco fabric. I love the large velvet flowers on the blouse front. The blouse slips over the head with no closures.
The condition is very good. The dress is still wearable.
The slip measures: 36" bust, 34" waist, 38" hip, and 41" from shoulder to
The blouse measures: 36" bust and waist, 38" hip, 14 1/2" from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, 22" sleeve length, and 26" from shoulder to hem.
