White yellow print cotton lawn 1920s day dress | M-L




This darling, organdy and cotton lawn 1920s day dress in yellow and white features a print of clouds and birds (possibly) against a pattern of squares. Off-white organdy trims the sleeve cuffs, collar, and patch pockets--the last 2 or which also have red-painted, white glass decorative buttons. A tiny button and loop closes the neckline above a small keyhole opening, which is below the tie that runs under the collar to fasten in front. The front of the bodice has a rectangular panel edged in beige piping, with a section of shirring, or tiny gathers, below it. The self-fabric belt fastens with red swirl Bakelite buckle. In very good condition, this 100-year-old dress has 3 tiny holes in the fabric at the front yoke section (see close-up photo). The classic 1920s “tube shape” of this dress is designed to fit very loosely, but we estimate that it will fit approximately a modern medium or smaller-sized large—please check the measurements for more details about fit. (Our last photo shows the dress unpinned from the mannequin, to give a better idea of its actual size.) It is relatively rare to find a 1920s day dress in this condition and in this size—quite wearable, with reasonable care.
