Original 1920s chiffon and lace flapper dress with velvet flower


A fabulous original 1920s flapper dress in delicate but intact condition.

In soft peach pink silk chiffon the collar, waist and skirts are trimmed with a band of ivory floral lace, the waist with a huge velvet flower trailing petals on fine wire stems.

To the very edge of the skirts are three layers of short frills, with the original ivory pure silk slip intact beneath.

Unlabelled and beautifully made the overdress closes with a single popper to the left side, the slip with poppers to a side seam.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries. I am always happy to combine postage at cost on multiple purchases.


Equivalent to a modern UK 8 to 10, designed to be worn as a fairly loose shift, the bust of the overdress measures 34 inches, waist 30 inches, the hips 40 inches max. From mid-shoulder to hem is 41 inches.


Delicate and sold with faults but largely intact. Marking to both underams with modest holing to the upper side seams in this area, a pinhead hole to the front centre bust, a large pale brownish water mark to the front centre skirts, mottling to the centre back. Scattered small holes across the lower frills and hem but not structurally compromising. Overall somewhat dusty and grubby but still exceptionally pretty. 


  • UK £4.00 
  • Europe £8.50
  • Rest of the world £9.50
