Vintage 1920s Silk Day Dress with Matching Floral Coat

Colorful, summer 20s day dresses are so rare...and this one has a matching jacket!  The dress is a lightweight, ivory silk crepe and the jacket is a floral print silk.  The dress is an iconic flapper style with a straight silhouette and a drop waist.  The bodice has an insert of the flowers found on the jacket with fagoting around them.  It also features shoulder pleating and a rolled neck.  The skirt has stitched pleating with bands of color and fagoting at the bottom.  The over-jacket is an open style.  The dress slips on over the head with no additional openings, so your measurements will need to be slightly smaller than those of the dress.


  • DETAILS:
    Label:  none 
    Fabric:  Silk
    Circa:  1920s

    BEST FITS:  XS  (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall excellent.  The dress set is in remarkable condition for its age and shows only very light, normal wear.  There is a bit of very faint underarm darkening on both pieces (see photo).  The jacket has a small amount of color bleed on the back (see photo) and a few small runs in the fabric.  This set is very wearable, but, as with any garment of this age, it should be worn with care.
