1920's Peasant Dress
One of the BEST embroidered antique peasant dresses I have had the priviledge of getting my hands on. Just look at her padded stitch embroidery!! Beautiful pastel color story of whipped cream, periwinkle blue, lavender, lemon, shell pink and ballet slipper pink, pisatchio and faded celery...this theme is woven throughout her smocked waistband as well. It is just one of the prettiest IMHO. She has some minor flaws but certainly nothing that ruins her wearabilty. (Please see asparagus for examples). Some slight staining, a few little holes and her tie is ragged in one spot. She presents very well as is, but I have not tried to clean or treat her in any way.
15 shoulder, 34-36+ bust, 26-30 waist, free hips, 7.5 armhole, 16 shoulder to waist, 42.5 length. There are snap side closures and a key hole tie at the nape. Her hem has 5.5 inches of seam allowance if needed. Solid, strong and ready to make people swoon.
