1920s – 1930s Silk Georgette Bias Cut Dress


Dating From late l920s early 1930s


Label no label Handmade hand finished


Measurements: The dress is cut on the bias width of the fabric

Which means the dress gives across the width and means that it can be put on over the head without an opening, the wider the wearer is the shorter the dress would be. I have styled the dress on our size 12 mannequin, because it is a bias-cut dress it is hard to give the measurement’s. I would say the dress could be worn by sizes 10 12 14



Side seam to side seam across the bust 36” (91.5 cm) without pulling it

Side seam to side seam across the waist 32” (81.5cm)

Side seam to side seam across the hip’s 46” (117cm)

Width at hem 80” (204 cm)

Length from back neckline to hem 43” (109 cm) measured on a size 12 mannequin measured flat on hanger the length is longer as the body shape fits the dress
