Vintage Roaring 20s Embroidered Tunic Dress -
Roaring '20s in a casual everyday kind of way...a rare find? Probably. Most of the '20s stuff out there is a lot more dressy and fancy. We like this day dress because it won't require a special occasion.
Made from sheer georgette that's lined in muslin, the dress is a basic tunic style with a dropped waist and a wide band at the waist that finishes in front with a decorative bow. The sleeves are long and lean, the skirt has a few small elegant box pleats for added flare.
We got a photo of the dress inside out so that you can see the construction. We're guessing this is likely a home sewn piece. It's really nicely done with that illusion style neckline. And the border of wide white embroidery is really nicely thought out. (Good job, 1920s seamstress!)
One thought--what about wearing this tunic with leggings or jeans? Of course, if you want a more traditional style, you could certainly pull-off something era specific. It's not hard to imagine it with a cloche, a perfect bob and some red lipstick. A long chain, too? Yeah. Maybe.
Very good--some flaws. One repair in the pleat in skirt. (See last photo.) One small spot on the bow. Bow is not sewn to waist, but pinned.
