Vintage 1920s Dress - Fantastic Simple But Bold Deco Printed Silk 20s Dress in Wonderful Geometric Print
This vintage 1920s dress is made of a printed raw silk, in a print that is unmistakely art deco. The colors and details of the print are wonderful - a mix of geometric shapes both solid and in broken lines, in dark brown, orange, celadon green and pale aviation grey-blue. It's a sleeveless style with a v neckline, and Trompe-l'œil faux closure at the front with button accents of silvery mother of pearl. There are side insets at the hip, and a center front pleat. There are two more pleats low at back. Against all odds, the original belt has stayed with the dress for very close to a hundred years, and it still has the original mother of pearl buckle.

This dress has been gently hand washed and is ready to wear. There is a subtle line of storage tanning along the far left side, but it hasn't affect the integrity of the fabric. There is a little discoloration on the belt. There is a small, faint pink smudge that I cleaned almost completely away, lower mid-section - likely old lipstick. You'll have to look to find it. This wears beautifully, is sturdy and strong, and I find no other issues to note!
