Black Silk Chiffon Embroidered Tabard: C1920 French
An extraordinary stylish hand made embroidered black silk chiffon tabard top dating from the 1920s.
One thing that I admire about cloths from this period is the attention not detail, and this tabard top is no exception.
The centre front and back panels have colourful embroidery which is echoed again on the cuffs.
The tabard is open down the sides and has a plain black long sleeved modesty blouse underneath which fastens down the center back with a row of press studs.
There is a loose belt which is fixed on either side with a large covered buttons and there are rows of delightful handmade Pom-poms along the hems and down the side seam of the sleeves.
The tabard is in excellent antique condition.
Measurements taken whilst garment is laying flat.
