This is a rare generous sized art deco, 1920s flapper dress.
The dress is decorated with prong set clear rhinestones and white glass beads in a light pattern mainly on the front and the sides. The full pleated sides of the dress starting at the hips are caught with a narrow belt which is secured on each end with a gold lame button. There are cap sleeves and a beaded and rhinestone studded neckline.
The dress is a rare generous size. I believe it will fit up to a size 12 comfortably. The measurements of the dress taken laid flat are: shoulder to shoulder 17", bust 23", waist 24", hips 25", shoulder to hem 45", and waist to hem 26".
The dress is in very good vintage condition. There are no holes or picks or pulls. There is one light stain however on the hip area where one of the lame buttons has colored the dress in a 6" by 4" area. I think moisture must have come into contact with the lame button and seeped onto the pink chiffon. The stain is light and I believe it will come out if laundered. There is a photo of it for you to see.
The dress is just beautiful and is such a great find in the larger size.
