This 20’s Luxurious Silk Velvet and Ermine Gown is Classic. Black silk velvet has a sophistication with no substitute. Bold. Luxurious. It defined turn-of-the-century and Art Deco fashion. This silk velvet gown has ermine collar accents with intricate eyelet scrolling in a floral motif pattern on the front and back. A drop waist is cinched with a dramatic long sash. It can be worn over a slip or under dress. The sheath connects at the waist leaving an opening on the side. Very sexy and alluring.
The model is perfectly slender which allows the fabric to hang in a linear way. It measures 14″ across the shoulders with a 36″ bust, 32″ drop waist, 38″ hip. It is 52″ from shoulder to floor hem.
Dressmaker details include hook and eye closures and hand picked facings (pic). A stunning lining finishes the neck and side seams. (pic). The embroidery handwork is the art of this dress making it fashionably priceless.
The piece is in amazingly good quality. For its age, it has only one very minor imperfection. A tear measuring 1″ up from the hemline on one side runs about 14″ directly across the hem. It is shown with tape (pic). A simple re-hem would solve the problem as the rest of the velvet is in very good condition. Some attention to the hooks and eyes at the waist would be needed to strengthen the closures. A huge black bakelite pin was used to cinch the waist (pic). This would take only minor hand sewing.
A beautiful 20’s luxurious silk velvet gown with priceless qualities.
VERY GOOD CONDITION.
