1920's Turquoise-Blue Crochet Silk-Knit Novelty Butterfly Fringe Flapper Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An alluring 1920's turquoise blue crochet silk-knit dress from the Art-Deco era of fashion. The bodice is an elegant square-neck plunge with dramatic fringed 3/4-length sleeves. I love the hand-stitched butterfly novelty pattern worked into both the front and back. The lower portion skirting also has floral hand-stitched designs going around the whole garment which is typical of the time period and insanely hard to do with crochet. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and finishing with a long fringed hemline! It is impeccably hand crafted and on the level of modern day couture. Here is a show-stopper with attitude and charisma.

Measurements (varies due to stretch-knit)
Bust:36-40 inches
Hips:38-42 inches
Sleeve Length:18 inches
Total Length:44 inches

This antique French silk-knit crochet dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips,stains or holes. Garment slips over the head with no additional closures. This beautiful dress is over 90 years old and is truly spectacular.
