While we cannot decipher exactly what the print on this 1920s dress depicts - we imagine that it may be of Egyptian influence - as there was a great “revival” of Egyptian symbolism and art following the discovery of King Tuts tomb in 1922. What are your thoughts? It is widely fascinating to dig into the history of fashion, and how pop culture has influenced fashion, and vice versa. Fashion + textiles are important vehicles for carrying history and art.
Whether the print was inspired by this movement or not, it is a fabulous textile of a silky woven rayon, soft and light, in a classic 20’s silhouette with a self-tie waist sash, faux peplum and a buttoned modesty panel.
Great overall condition at nearly a century old, the dress is clean and ready to wear though a couple small areas of light yellowing remain. Strong + sturdy with tons of hand stitched seams.
Shoulder - 15” + puff
Bust - 46”
Waist - 38-39”

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for. They will likely have general wear and blemishes. We try our best to note any major wear or damages on each garment - although we may sometimes overlook things - which we do apologize for.
Please do not expect all vintage garments to come perfect, unless “MINT CONDITION” has been stated in the description.
Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. Most vintage garments do not have the stretch or give of modern fabrics. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure (twice) a similar garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed.
We cannot offer refunds for fit issues, variances in monitor colors, or buyer’s remorse since these things are out of our control.
