Vintage 20s Cream Silk Tap Shorts With Lace Insets, Small

These 1920s silk tap shorts are beautifully designed, with an angled, shaped waist yoke, lace insets, and delicate embroidery on the legs. It buttons up on the side with three mother of pearl buttons. The silhouette is flared and the silk drapes beautifully. They have a four-piece gusset and french seams.

These tap shorts are in beautiful condition for their age, and the silk is still very strong.

CONDITION: Excellent overall, but there is some standard wear from age - there is a smattering of pin sized black dots on the back of gusset, some very minor faint marks on the right front side under the waistband, they did not show up in photographs.
