Vintage 1920s Black Silk and Velvet Cape Dress

A darkly chic dress.  Black silk bodice with black velvet yoke neckline and spiked drop waist.  The velvet insets are outlined with faggoting.  Long sleeves.  The back as an attached silk rectangle that hangs like an asymmetrical cape off the back.  It slips on over the head with no additional side or back openings so your measurements must be smaller than those given below.  We think this dress would look even more amazing with the sleeves removed, but we've left that decision to the new owner.

 

DETAILS

Label:  none

Best fits:  S/M  (see measurements)

Circa:  1920s

Condition:  Overall good - very good.  The dress is in good, wearable condition (especially considering its age) but has a few small cosmetic flaws.  There are a few scuffs and "brushes" on the silk here and there, as well as a few very faint spots.  There are also a couple of pinholes on one sleeve.  It appears as though the front had perma-pleats that have fallen out.  Priced accordingly.
