This pretty summer dress from the 1920s has a demure shawl collar that forms a self tie in the center front, and also has 5 tiny rows of tucks along each shoulder seam for subtle bodice shaping.

The skirt has a dramatic horizontal zig zag layer that adds a ton of volume and visual interest.

The colors of this are a deep, rich eggplant purple (it's nearly navy blue), with beautifully contrasting yellow, orange, and cream and with charming accents of lilac. The print is an enormous daisy floral.

This is sleeveless: bound finished.

Measurements:

40" bust

16" long from the center back of the neck to the waistline seam

32" waistline (designed to be worn loose)

45" long from center back of the neck to the hem

with a fantastic 182" sweep of hem

Condition: Not perfect, but the minor issues are all very well disguised: we found tiny pin-head sized holes under the tie ends in the front bodice...they are very well disguised by the print, and the ties hang over them. We also found short bits of the stitch finished hem has come out in three places: we've included images showing the size of them. The volume of the skirt, along with the print disguises this very well, too. For it's age, this is truly in remarkable condition.

Our mannequin wears size 6. These dresses present best when worn loose rather than tight, so please keep that in mind if you are considering this as a wearable piece.

This makes a beautiful display piece, but it is quite sturdy and could be worn (with care)... Garden parties, wedding receptions, bridal showers, tea at the Ritz, Downton Abbey parties all come to mind...
