Two-Piece Flapper Dress

This romantic two piece lace dress, purchased from a New Hampshire estate, dates from the 1920’s and comes with a wonderful provenance: “1920’s lace dress…for Captain’s Table events.” The dress has a rose-toned brown slip with spaghetti straps sewn in at the shoulders. The sleeveless flapper style dress of cream and brown lace ends in tiers of ruffles, which form an asymmetrical hem. The back ruffle at its longest is 7” longer than the front. A beautiful pin of interlocking rhinestone rings with two gold triangles at top and bottom centers above the ruffles at hip level. The dress comes with a matching cream and brown lace jacket, perfect for cool evenings on deck. The dress “moves” beautifully, and would be perfect for dancing. After a game of shuffle board, wheel barrow races, a lifeboat drill and a walk about the engine room, you are ready to dress for dinner at the Captain’s Table at quarter past seven sharp. All you have to do now is wait on deck for the steward to sound the dinner bugle.
