This is an adorable antique vintage silk long, floor length, slip dress from the 1920's to 1930's. Because it was rarely ever used it makes the color & fabric look brand new... but it's a true antique. If you wear a slip or Spanx underneath, it makes a super cute dress to wear out shopping or a day of lunch with the girls! It has that wonderful posh bohemian look. The silk is so beautiful in a soft pale peachy pink color with a tone on tone delicate & subtle floral damask print. It has adorable details like a heart shaped pocket in front, the adjustable straps tie in bows on top of the shoulders, there is a tie belt attached at the waist, & it's sewn/cut on the bias at the bottom like so many of the dresses were back then, Art Deco elegance! Unlined with sheer beige lace floral embroidery & inserts on the front. Slip on/ pull over style with no hooks or zippers. A are beauty!
