Condition Detail
The silk looks and feels sturdy, though a 1920s era silk is generally only considered wearable with caution simply due to age; the left bodice has an old insert of silk satin at the side seam, this satin is brownish in color compared to the rest of the dress because of differences in dyes, could be removed or hidden and would make the dress fit approximately 2 inches smaller at bust and waist
