Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Delicate and wonderful, this sheer almost antique dress from the 1920's is a pure dream.

Dress has stitching running from neck and shoulder to mid dress, mimicking pleats. One seam runs along the waist, while three run below it giving the dress some texture. Below the drop waist is a lace fabric that is extremely soft and delicate to the touch.

Dress has a loose and large fit and is OS. Please see measurements.

In excellent vintage condition for its age.

Unfortunately, only remnants of the design house or designer remain.

*All MRS Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping, so that they are ready to wear upon arrival.
