1920s Vintage Dress in Ivory Silk With Pink Embroidery and Topstitching

About

This is a beautiful ivory silk vintage dress from the late 1920's. The dress is sleeveless, with a pink silk braided tie at the neck and it is decorated with gorgeous pink embroidery, smock pleating, cutwork and topstitching. We acquired the dress from a woman who sold us all of her aunt's clothing from the 1920's and 1930's. She lived in Shanghai, China in the 1920's through the early 1930's and had incredible clothing! We've sold most all of her pieces and this is one of the last ones we have. The dress is meant to be worn loosely, so it can fit a number of sizes up to a 40" bust.
