Vintage 1920s Flapper Dress Beaded Silk Chiffon Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
• Authentic 1920s flapper dress
• Beaded silk chiffon
• Size medium
• In very good condition except for a small hole and tear (minor damage), and a few missing beads
This is a gorgeous 1920s flapper dress made in black silk chiffon fabric that is hand beaded with iridescent black and blue beads. This 1920s flapper dress is sleeveless with a rounded neckline and dropped waist. The skirt of the dress is gathered at the sides below the waist, which creates a pleated look and provides for leg movement. The dress is unlined and the fabric is translucent, so should be worn with a slip.
Sizing: There is no size label and although this 1920s flapper dress should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Bust: 37” around, should be a little roomy
Waist: 37” around, meant to be loose, due to straight cut of style.
Hips: 42” around
Overall length: 43”, measured flat
Condition: This 1920s flapper dress has a hole at the left shoulder strap (see last close-up photo) and a tiny tear at the right armpit (see second to last close-up photo), really minor damage considering the delicacy of silk chiffon that is weighted down by beading. A good seamstress would be able to properly repair and reinforce these areas. I noticed one loose string of beads at the right shoulder strap and some beads missing from the centre motif at the back (see third to last photo) - there may be other beads missing, but nothing obvious, the beading appears to be mostly present, and is fabulous.
This is a striking 1920s flapper dress - very classy, sparkly beading!
