Antique black satin dress with lace from the 1920s.
Belt at the waist which is stitched at the back and sides (3 stitches so could easily be removed). and There is a snap button on each side at the front. It closes with a beautiful buckle with rhinestones and what seems to be black glass or stone. Two rhinestones are missing and the black has a crack.

The lace over the shoulders is damaged and torn in several places. It could be replaced by a skilled seamstress.
Lovely fabric covered buttons and loops at the cuffs.
Bow at the front and nice details at the back as seen in the photographs.

The top part (except from the sleeves) has a black cotton lining that closes with two snap buttons.
Some tiny imperfections are possible as it is an antique piece.
Stitched by hand in some places.

Please note, there is no opening on the dress. I managed to put it on my mannequin which is a size US 8 or French 38/40 but check the measurements below to make sure it will fit you.
