Dreamy late 1920's - early 1930's flesh tone sheer crepe chiffon floral tea gown/negligee. Bias cut. Eight snap closure at left waist. Draping criss-crossed front (with weight - see photo) that billows into wide slotted sleeves ending in a point at the wrist. The back of the dress is sleeveless but the front sleeves form a cape-like wrap over the back of the shoulders. Beautiful floral pattern covers bodice and then flows down the right side of the skirt and around the back of the hem, finishing on the front of the right side of the hem. The completely sheer champagne crepe chiffon is as light & delicate as a feather. If there ever was a Daisy Buchanan dress, this is it...

Condition: Very Good to Excellent. The overall integrity of the gown is excellent. Everything is in tact and the seams where the snaps are sewn are solid. There have been some repairs to the chiffon under the left arm of the sleeve and there are a few small seam separations around the neckline that are just starting & a few tiny pinholes here and there. This piece is delicate as would be expected for it's age and fabric, so be sure to check the measurements carefully; it has to pull over your head and the back shoulder seams are only 12" apart.
