A Black Silk Chemise Sky With Beaded Dreems...
Design - Here we have an exceptional gown from the early 1920s, specifically 1922 - 1924. It comes to you in a black silk with beading throughout. The design is in the long caftan or chemise styling of the period with silk side panels below the waist, giving elegant movement to the boxy, drapey cut of the gown. The beadwork has some structural Art Deco patterning along with some circular, whirling patterning going on, too. It has a slit up each. A gorgeous example of teens fashion bleeding and morphing into twenties fashion. Simple stunning on the wearer.
Material - black silk velvet
Maker - There is no makers mark but this dress was exceptionally well designed and created.
*Please double all measurements except length
*I wanted to note that my model is 32-26-39 for perspective on size and it was not pinned on her.
*Please note there are no side closures, so be sure to leave room to slip it in over head. This is the reason for the accurate sizing.
SM - MED
Waist - 21"
Length - 56"
Condition - This dress is in very good condition for its age and has minimal bead loss on one band on the back of the neck with the patterning of the beads still showing on the silk and has been secured in other areas. It comes to you in clean ready-to-wear condition.
A fantastic example of early 1920s fashion to add to your vintage wardrobe!
Model - CC Pyle
