Vintage 1920s Dress / Cotton 20s Day Dress
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Very lightweight and like organdy, not lined and slightly sheer. Slips on over the head, there are no snaps or other openings.
This dress is in good condition and it is wearable, although it should still be worn with care since it is such lightweight cotton. I can only find one small pinhole, but there are a few light spots which are mainly lost in the floral print. There is some discoloration which is mainly above and along the contrasting trim at the hem and neck. See the last photo. Priced at a discount and sold as is.
There are no tags, this dress was custom made. Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
