This dress is a great one. It's actually from the 1920s but the silk is in fantastic condition. It is shaped"free size" pleated at the shoulder seams and just opening up around the body. We've tied it here at the true waist with the self fabric sash it comes with for a more flattering shape. The dress can be worn with or without the sash nor a belt. The featherweight silk is as breezy as you could ever imagine and the colors in the flowers are as bright as when they would have been printed nearly 100 years ago. A lovely wearable antique.
