Radiant 1920's Ecru Lace Dress With Original Silk Charmeuse Underdress

Radiant 1920's drop-waisted ecru lace dress, a larger size and very beautifully embroidered example with its original peach silk charmeuse and tulle underdress. The sleeveless dress is embroidered with striking stylizations of flowers and leaves in satin-stitch with small knots at their centers and has lustrous, full-length silk machine lace inserts on each side and encircling the hemline and armscyes, a band of seven tucks around the waist and a row of decorative, non-functioning crochet-covered buttons down the front. The peach color of the silk charmeuse brightens the tulle dress and gives the ensemble a luminous character, and the chemise style underdress has an ecru tulle hemline peeking from under the dress with matching shoulder straps and bust panels and side snap closures. Both pieces are in excellent uncleaned vintage condition, very strong and wearable with a few tiny breaks in the tulle and a few pale, age-related spots, the dress measuring 47-inches long with an unexpanded 42 bust, 40 hip and waist, and the slip/underdress 46-inches long with a 40 bust.
