Circa late 1920s/early 1930s, this stunning dress is crafted of taffeta in a gorgeous pistachio hue. It has all the makings of a 1930s dress, with voluminous ruffled sleeves, a slightly dropped waist, and a skirt with gores sewn in, to create a mermaid shape in the skirt. Note the vertical ruffles that run down the skirt as well, and the ruched panel on the side bodice— so many thoughtful and romantic design details! The more relaxed fit and dropped waist reference the flapper dresses of the late 1920s, which makes this such a special pieces, delicately spanning two distinct, iconic moments in fashion history. It slips on overhead, with a keyhole hook closure at the back.
