Vintage 1920s

This product is unavailable

Lightweight tissue weight silk and handmade filet lace create this stunning and ethereal 1920s night gown. Cut in a Grecian goddess-like style, this gown has gathering at the bust creating an empire-waist. Beautifully hand stitched and put together, you will truly feel like a fluttering fairy from the 1920s when wearing this. Slightly fragile and delicate, this should be worn over a sturdier (newer) slip to protect the antiquity of this gown. Displays and presents beautifully.

Bust/Empire Waist: roughly 38" with some stretch
Hips: Free
Length: 54"

Condition: Good yet delicate vintage condition. This has been delicately cleaned using museum-quality methods. It is clean and ready to enjoy. The silk is fragile and should be worn with care (shows areas of thinning). There are some pinkish discolorations on the lace that have faded but are slightly visible in the bodice (see close up). There is also a discoloration on back near hem (also faded and not too visible).
