A beautiful silk crepe dress that we bought as a colour reference - the pattern is in great colours of teal blue, apricot and lemon. All on black.

Found in an antique shop in Prague, this dress is of beautiful quality and very stylish.

It's in a semi-sheer silk crepe that isn't quite as transparent as chiffon, but probably does need a slip underneath.

In lovely condition and very wearable in a typical late 20s or early 30s style. The sleeves are slashed at the top so that when you wear it, your arm can be seen. It also means the sleeves can be worn in two styles, depending on whether you put your arm through the slash or not. Hard to describe but both ways of wearing look great!

Good size - unusually for a dress of this period. It's about 40 inches across at the chest, and 38 inches at the hips (note that the hips are fairly narrow). The fabric has a little stretch (it may be bias cut) so measurements are a bit flexible. I would say it's probably roughly a British size 12 (US 8-10).
