Vintage 1920s Falling Leaves Silk Flapper Dress

Raleigh Vintage

A rare 1920s flapper day dress!  Lightweight silk with a autumnal falling leaves print in shades of brown.  Simple scoop neckline and long sleeves.  Classic 20s styling with a straight bodice and drop waist.  The hips are wrapped with an attached wide sash.  Two tiers of very full ruffles make up the skirt.  The under skirt has a kick pleat.  So fun!  This beauty slips on over the head with no side or back openings, so your measurements should be smaller than those of the dress.



Label:  none

Best fits:  XS/Petite

Circa:  1920s

Condition:  Overall excellent.  The dress is in amazing, wearable condition (especially considering its age).  It shows very light, normal wear, but no issues to note.  There is the very faintest hint of darkening under the arms, but it held up to two washings, so there the fabric there appears to be strong.  As with all garments of this age, the dress should be worn with care.
