1920's burgundy satin dress 36-38 bust. the dress actually measures for a 40" bust but this is meant to be worn loose.
a beautiful example from the 1920's in a lustrous satin. the colour is a deep claret, almost burgundy with peach rayon trim. the dress is the typical drop waist style, with nice detailing. the bodice is blousy with a deep insert centre front edged with lapels. the insert is peach with a ruffled edge, faux buttons in a burgundy chain stitch and zigzag embroidery trim. the long sleeves have the same ruffled trim or "shark fin trim" as it is often called. the skirts are slightly more fitted over the hip area with horizontal seam trim, and then they flare out to give a lovely sway. large embroidery flowers decorate the lower skirts. #1920#1920sfashion#flapper#satindress#vintageforsale#roaring20s#jazzage#vintage
