Of all the amazing beaded dresses I've seen from the 20's, this is one of my favorites. It is simply textile art at it's finest. Beautifully constructed on a backdrop of sheer peach colored muslin this lovely work leaves not a single fingertip area of fabric untouched by silver bugle beads and shimmering sequins! (Oh, and the flowers on the skirt insert are designed with silver seed beads.)
Although flapper dresses strongly emphasized the surface design of the dress over the female form, this dress' spectacular curvilinear flower-burst, side-slit and sassy length combine to create a sexy and stunning 1920's achievement. A true art deco treasure!
Size: Small. Measures 38" long; 35" bust, waist and hips.
Condition: Excellent unworn vintage condition with almost no bead loss - strong and wonderfully wearable. The beading was done with a strong chain stitch and the dress seams are enforced with triple thread. More pictures available upon request.
