Little Black Book - 1920s Flapper Dress

200.00 280.00

n. a book containing the names and addresses of acquaintances who are potential dates, usually put together by men. Am I in your little Black Book, or can you already tell that I wouldn't go out with you?

This exceptional 1920s flapper dress is as beautiful as it is rare. Literally dripping in sequins and beads, this dress is in amazing structural condition and is completely wearable. From the pin tucked rear panel which drops from the round neckline to the dropped waist and then flairs out in wisps of silk chiffon, to the heavily embellished bodice featuring sequins, beads, lace, and embroidery stitches, this dress is a jaw dropper. A unique relic of almost 100 years, this dress has been cherished and well looked after. Other design features include faux panniers from the hips in single strips of silk chiffon which have been edged in rows of beads, and knotted strips of the same with tassels falling from the shoulders. Simply stunning in design and condition, this lady's new owner will not be disappointed.

Condition: Exemplary condition for its age! Tiny cosmetic tears in the right hand side of the bodice which have no structural ramifications.

A few pinholes in the top layer of the bodice on the back but unnoticeable when worn due to lining and structurally stable.
