Elegant Era Dress | vintage 20's silver raw silk beaded evening gown | small


This misty silver dress is a beautiful example of 1920's formal wear. It's delicately beaded and detailed, from the beautiful skirt panels to the edges of the dainty sleeves. Well made is an understatement, and this dress is a perfect example of the construction techniques of the day: full of tiny snaps and hook + eyes attaching this piece to that-- it's remarkable! The color is much more of a tea/beige hued silver, than a blue silver. The dress is fully lined in cotton. It would best fit a size small or extra small, but please see measurements to be certain.

M e a s u r e m e n t s

{bust} - 36" inches

{waist} 26" inches

{hips} - 42" inches

{sleeve} - 13"

L a b e l : none, custom made.

C o n d i t i o n : This dress is in Great vintage condition, especially for it's age! The detailing and fabric are so beautiful, but there are several subtle flaws: staining at the waist (this could definitely be creatively covered by raising or replacing the center scallop-panel), and some loose beading in a couple of places. The dress is definitely wearable, but delicate.
