Incredible 1920s caramel silk dress in a rare larger size. Classic flapper loose oversized fit. Folded collar and v neck. Long sleeves with snaps at wrists and subtle bishop shape. Dropped waist with wide waist sash. Micro pleat bib and softly pleated skirt. Flattering ruching across shoulders. Wonderful soutache and metal thread embroidery in Egyptian Revival motifs.

LAYAWAY available; message for details.

Measurements:
*no closures, slips over the head
*meant to fit loosely. Recommended for a size L
-Bust: 50"
-Dropped waist: 49" (21" from shoulder)
-Hip: about 56"
-Length: 44"

Condition: Excellent. Sash might need a few stitches to secure at waist level, depending on your sizing. It was too large on my dress form and had to be pinned to keep from drooping. A few pinholes, a couple faint spots. One teensy break less than 1/4" at left shoulder (probably from hanging for decades on a hanger)
