Vintage 1920s Black Moire Silk Dress with Glass Buttons

Produced in the roaring twenties, this black striped moire silk day dress with signature mid-1920s uneven hemline and detailed sleeves makes a striking impression with its near-museum quality preservation. This garment, although small in the shoulders and arms, retains its ability to be worn because of study construction and light wear. The dress's hipline has been adorned with silver painted glass buttons and the sleeves accented with red silk chiffon. Three pleats add structured style to each of the shoulders. This dress, much like most garments made prior to the mid-century, is without a label.  Minor age-related damage can be seen on the bottom tier of the skirt where there are two small clusters of pin-sized holes.  There is also slight tearing along the seam of the red chiffon on the cuffs.  Photos of the damage with size comparison can be seen in the dress images.  Please note that the cuffs and shoulders are very narrow.
