Late Flapper Era Yellow, Green and Oange Floral Silk Chiffon Dress, ca 1930s

$225.00 USD



  • Silk Chiffon
  • Silk Batiste
Perfect for your luncheon or tea party!

This beautiful confection is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than a tiny bit of shredding of the pale yellow silk batiste lining, as magnified in the last photo; the millinery flower that is embedded in the same silk chiffon material as the dress needs a gentle steaming.

Please be sure to note the dropped waist and elegant handkerchief hem; note, too, the capelet effect of the flouncy collar that goes covers the sleeveless top and goes over the shoulders to dip down in the back.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 16"
armpit to armpit: 18"
hips (flat): 19"
back length: 51"

What a wonderful example of 1930s wearable textile art and fashion and a great addition to your vintage clothing collection! This piece is sure to be the focal point of your vintage or contemporary ensemble.
