Gauzy Floral Lawn Dress
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
A sweet and feminine number, here we have a lovely 1920 cotton lawn dress, with all over floral print.
The dress has a v-neck and fluttery-y, flouncy short sleeves, with darted bust. Relaxed through the waist and hip, the dress flares slightly out into a fuller skirt.
The dress is embellished along the v-neck front with a small , carved celluloid flower button.
The fabric on the dress is a paper thin cotton, in a sheer white with small floral bouquets and flower buds scattered through out the sweet, feminine pattern.
The dress is a pull-on style with no additional closures or fastenings.
This piece is in wonderful condition for it's advanced age, but it does show a few issues, faint areas of discoloration under each armpit and it appears the carved floral button was attached at the v-neck to mask a mend. Please look closely at pictures of this.
