Lovely 1920's Slip
From the seller:
Adorable 20's Deco Embroidered Boudoir Frock of palest pastel green Silk Crepe Bodice
with Very Full gathered palest pastel pink Silk Gossamer Chiffon Skirt,
& pretty eyelet Val Lace with pink satin ribbon for trim & straps.
The Embroidery in front has a Lovely Spray of Silk Embroidered wild Roses, hand done in shades of Rose
& pink with Bronze leaves & stems,
all hand done in very muted pastel shades, Victorian Royal Society type design & very tiny silk work.
Pullover style with no openings., side net inserts.
I would consider this Garment to be a medium in size.
Measurements are EXACT taken flat & doubled:
(model is 5'10" so the dress may hang longer on a shorter person)
No real Issues, a couple of pinholes and a tiny mark or two. There is general very slight overall surface wear as you would expect on a garment of this age.
Otherwise it is Sound, has been dry cleaned, pressed and is ready to wear. No discoloration or other stains
This was probably meant to go under another dress and not as a "boudoir frock".
