This beautiful dress I would estimate dates to the late teen early 1920's. It is covered in thousands of beautiful silver glass beads that catch the light as the dress moves. I am purely selling this for display as I feel it is not strong enough for wearing. The top of the dress is a cream satin and fastens with buttons at the back. The underskirt is cream satin. The net is covered in beautiful bead work which surprisingly is good and strong still. It is open at the back with a panel of chiffon stitched in. The dress does have some issues, there are some holes around the bottom of the dress where the bead work has torn the net, I think this could be rectified by a skilled hand. There are loose threads to the front and back with a little of the bead work missing and the chiffon panel at the back has a couple of holes that could be mended. Having said this, it is still a beautiful dress for display or could even be used for various projects. The size is extra small.
