I am pleased to offer another outstanding vintage French Haute Couture dress from a wonderful collection that I recently acquired. This Art Deco era flapper dress is stunning. It is made of a very fine high quality black lace and is so well made. The bodice is backed with a an ultra fine cotton mesh and the there is a built in slip that is silk satin with a silk chiffon ruffle at the bottom. I have taken lots of photos to show the details. The neckline features a sweetheart bodice and there is a double row of dovetailed pleats giving this dress alot of "flounce" and movement. The overall condition is good with the exception of an area on the bodice that needs someone with a steady hand to do a light repair. Also the inner mesh has a couple of holes and a patch to the back which is not very noticeable as it is on the inside. The inner beige lining, under the arm is separating between the entredeux edging and mesh. Again, an easy repair. There are no odors, other holes or damage. It is in really good condition considering the age. The bust measures 32"-34" and the waist measures approximately 30" when laid flat. A beautiful vintage dress that came from France or somewhere else in Europe. I have found a very similar dress designed by Callot Soeurs that is in a museum, see last photo. If perfect, this would be a $500-$700 dress, so it is worth the time to do the TLC
