The embroidery work on this 1920s true vintage Peasant Flapper dress is astonishing to say the least. Cream stitching in an organic vine, leaf and wheat motif climb along the bodice and along the skirt over a cream and light coral silk chiffon. While the dress does have issues, some solvable through restoration, it makes up for it in the hand-stitched design. One of the best examples of embroidery I've seen.
