This is a beautiful ivory silk vintage dress from the late 1920's. This bohemian style dress is sleeveless, with a pink silk braided tie at the neck and it is decorated with gorgeous pink embroidery, smock pleating, cutwork and topstitching.
We acquired this lovely dress from a woman who sold us all of her aunt's clothing from the 1920's and 1930's. She lived in Shanghai, China in the 1920's through the early 1930's and had an incredible wardrobe! We were so honored to be able to handle all of her beautiful pieces and the handwork was exceptional. One of her 1920's silk dresses had rows of inset lace depicting cities in China. A truly exceptional estate of vintage clothing! We've sold most all of her pieces and this is one of the last ones we have.
We love mixing vintage 1920's pieces with modern separates, shoes, coats, etc. You can make this dress modern by wearing it with a current day jacket, a pair of leggings, or by wearing it as a dress with modern jewelry and accessories.
The dress is meant to be worn loosely, so it can fit a number of sizes up to a 40" bust.
