Unique vintage 1920's quilted paisley print silk dress. The paisley print portion is striking in yellowish orange, pink and blue hues featuring a quilted embroidery technique that pops against the black background. The paisley fabric is a luxurious silk satin that is lined on the underside with a woven cotton / linen type material to help keep structure and shape. The black material of the dress is also silk - however, there are two different types of silk here. The silk making up the front vest, sleeves, drop waistband and first skirt tier is much softer and flexible. The silk on the back, skirt sides and bottom hem along with the gathered front waist waistband has a stiffer slightly dry feel - I did the pull test and it didn't budge, but please wear with care.
Great styling with a quilted paisley collar neckline accented with a center grosgrain bow and a keyhole opening; long sleeves with cuffed paisley hems; open vest type front showing generous peeks of the quilted paisley print silk with 17 fantastic pink carved button accents; drop waistline embellished with a gathered draped silk sash and ornamental metal buckle, ruched side panels and the tiered skirt. The dress has no closures with exception of two hook/loops at keyhole neckline. Keep this in mind when viewing the measurements as you'll need to be able to pull this on over your head.
