1920s Best and Co Green Lame Tiered Deco Print Dress



This attractive 1920s lame dress is a pretty but subtle combination of colours, in gold, sage green, pale blue and dusk pink. Unlined, the fabric is light and airy, and the unusual construction of the gown creates a beautiful movement when worn. The softly defined boat neck at the front of the garment contrasts the stylish cape neck on the reverse, that graduates from the top of the sleeve and finishes neatly just below the shoulder blades. The bodice of the dress is a modest shift cut, lightly nipping in at the waist with a delicate seam, and ever so slightly fitted around the hip. A series of small fastenings are concealed by the seam on the left hip line. The full length skirt is characterised by a unique 2 tiered design - one to the front of the garment that finishes at the knee, followed by a second at the reverse, that falls from the back of the knee and resolves at the mid calf. The dress is in excellent condition with no damage or tarnishing. Was retailed by Best and Co of New York and Paris circa 1928 - 1933. Would fit up to US size 8 - 10, UK size 12 - 14.
