This stunning flapper dress is spun gold on black mesh! With deco design and chevron stripes woven in and velvet flowers at the shoulders, you will be ready for any special occasion or Gatsby event.
Couple things to note about wear. It is actually a little scratchy as the dress is unlined so the woven fibers do lay against your skin when you have it on with no slip underneath. And you WILL NEED A SLIP as it is completely sheer and see-through. So, although a good slip/under-garment will help to shield your skin from the scratchy fibers, you will need to take this on as a project so as to find the right piece that feels and looks good underneath this dress, I think she is quite worth the effort! The velvet flowers will need a light steam by a professional once it is received as they will have flattened down with packing (we will pack with care mind you).
Condition on this dress is surprisingly excellent. There is no beading, fyi. This flapper dress is UNLINED and has no fasteners, it pulls on over the head. You will need to steam the velvet flowers before wear, they will have flattened down during shipping. A few areas around both armholes where the threads used to edge the armholes are broken and will need to be restitched to avoid further fraying and breakage. There are loose threads around the neckline, armholes and edges.
PLEASE NOTE, due to the age, this dress is not eligible for return. It is a FINAL SALE, please ask questions before ordering.
About the under-slip in some of the images: We put our own 20s slip underneath, it is not included with this listing.
