Antique 1920s Peach Silk Dress with Ivory Lace Collar

Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

Fantastically stunning peachy orange silk dress from the 1920s. Has a beautiful dark ivory linen and lace collar both front and back, pretty smocking below the drop waist and two layers of ruffles at the bottom hem. There are loops for a belt but no belt. If you could find ivory lace that would match or closely match the collar that'd be really special looking. No closures, just pulls over the head. No label. Probably about a larger medium but please see condition below.

Excellent vintage condition. For its age and being silk its in remarkable shape. Very wearable though gently of course. There is some repair work under one armpit and I can see the other will need doing as well. There is a dark scuff on the skirt. See photos. Otherwise its really pretty amazing. There are some areas if you hold it to the light where the silk is getting thin and perhaps shoring those up, or at least being aware of them would be a good idea.
