This 1920s ethereal antique tea dress is printed with florals in colours of the rainbow; peachy pink sits with red, lilac-blue, yellow and lime green, all against a gorgeous powder blue background. Falling to around ankle length, the straight-silhouette and sheer finish of the georgette cloth is typical of gowns of this era and this piece would have classically been worn with a slip underneath. There is smocking at the shoulders and at the front neckline which adds pretty detail. Delicate, frilly layers fall from the skirt, matching the ruffle detail at the sleeves and along the ankle-length hem.

This rare survivor is in excellent antique condition for a gown closing in on a century old. We noted a few, very small pin head holes in a couple of places that cannot be seen when worn. It is a good size too and will fit a variety of sizes up to a UK 12 or US 8. Although the dress slips on over the head, there are some side poppers to aid access.
