1920s Bohemian Silk Embroidered Vintage Dress Smock Pleating Peasant

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a fabulous vintage dress from an estate I acquired a few years ago. The estate was originally owned by a woman who lived in Shanghai in the 1920's and 1930's and she purchased beautiful dresses and evening gowns while living there. This dress was one of hers and appears to have never been worn. It is made of a luxurious cream silk, which is unusual for these kinds of dresses, and it has smock pleating and red embroidered stitching. The dress has full bishop sleeves and slips over the head to wear. Please use the measurements as a guide for the best fit, but I would estimate the dress to be a modern day US size 6/8. Since the bodice is full and there is some stretch to the smocked area, the fit is somewhat flexible. A beautiful vintage bohemian dress!
