1920s Vintage Cotton Wrap Dress with Painted & Embroidered Flowers SZ M

Such a simple and yet sweet summer dress from the 1920s. I see a wide brim straw cloche and some T strap shoes with white gloves. The gold flowers are painted on (stenciled perhaps?) then embellished with green and yellow embroidery. This is a wrap style with self belt and 2 mother of pearl buttons on the front skirt to keep it in line. All the edges are finished with yellow cotton bias binding.

Label: None

Condition: Excellent. No stains or holes.

Size: Bust: 38”, Low Waist: 41”, Shoulders: approx. 16”, CB Neck to Hem: 39”, Hem Sweep: 46”

The dress has a cowl neckline, deep V back, trained hem, front seaming and darts, plus a back waist seam. The back bodice panels are lined in chiffon. There is s a lot of hand sewing on the garment. The bias cut skirt has seaming in a back V, with asymmetrical skirt seaming and a back godet. As you can see, the CB seam is off center.There are no closures as this is a slide over the head dress.

1920s Gold and Chocolate Felt Vintage Hat with Stunning Ostrich Plumes

This gorgeous hat dates from the very late Teens, say, 1918, to the early 1920s. It’s a sturdy, stiff golden orange felt with a deep crown and a chocolate brown fur felt brim with matching band. The plumes are ostrich, dyed to match the felt, and set on wires loops. The lining is matching silk satin.

Label: None

Size: Crown: 23” Brim overall: 15.5” X 14”

Condition: Excellent. No stains, holes or signs of wear except for minuscule moth divots. This hat appears unworn. This lining is silk with a piped oval tip, and is set in correctly for the period.
