Breathtaking 1920's French dance dress in the iconic 'robe de style' silhouttee made famous by Jeanne Lanvin. The dress is fashioned in luxurious blue silk-satin and sheer tulle. Three dimensional pink rose appliques add the perfect amount of charm. The sleeveless bodice is cut slim and close-fitting, while the skirt rather exaggerated. The fullness in the skirt is a result of built-in panniers at each hip. What an outstanding dress for a stylish woman who uses her clothing as the material from which to create a work of art.

This antique dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, stains or holes. Garment closes with side metal snaps. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from the era.
