One piece, fully lined dress, is completely covered in black sequins and black glass tube beads. I mean covered, completely! Abstract pattern with lots of sparkle. True vintage.
Sleeveless dress has high rounded neckline. Gentle, princess seaming, pulls in the waist slightly. Not meant to fit too tight. Back center zipper works perfectly.
Taking in or Letting out this dress would be very difficult because it is completely covered in sequins and beading. Please refer to the above measurements for best fit.
Excellent vintage condition. Clean and free of odor. Don't let the low price fool you. This is a gorgeous gown, true vintage and wonderful. I price items to sell.
I am sure there are a some sequins missing but you would be hard pressed to see where they are. A few came off during picture taking. All but 4 or 5 of the long glass tube beads appear to be intact. You could find lots along the hemline to use as replacements.
This is not a lightweight dress. It must weigh about 3 or 4 pounds with all the beading.
Note: two spots inside the front bodice lining are, I believe residue from body tape? Of course they do not show on the outside.
This dress weighs more than one pound. The least expensive postage option in the USA is via Priority Mail. Part of the insurance is included in this cost.
