Vintage 1920s Vintage flapper day dress.Please

Made from heavy black crepe-de-chine, this little dress has the understated elegance you would expect from the age! Smart without being overly dressy, you could wear it equally well to work or a cocktail party: either way you'll never encounter someone wearing the same thing...and that's the joy of vintage!
Very hard to photograph, it has a square neckline and elbow-length sleeves with folded cuffs. The back falls in pleats from the waist, giving movement to the movement.
the charm of the dress lies in its shape, and therefore its structure. The shoulders feature sun-ray pleating, and the square neck has a layer of fabric falling in points to just below the armholes. Further layers embellish the skirt, in that typical flapper tiered effect.
Hard to describe, and not easy to photograph either - but I do hope you get the idea! It fastens at the back, from about 8 inches (20 cms) below the neck down to just below the waist, is in really good condition for its age with no discernible faults, and measures approximately 38-28-36 inches (96.5-71-91.5 cms), length 42 inches (107 cms).
