RESERVED on LAYAWAY- Vintage 1920s Dress - RARE 20s Flapper Dress With Beaded Fringe and Studded Rhinestones in Sheer White
This vintage 1920s dress is stunningly rare -a Gatsby era beauty that is everything you want when you think "flapper dress." The silk ethereally sheer and light, and yet somehow supports thousands of beads and studded rhinestones - it is still surprisingly sturdy. This is shown on a size 0 form, but also looked quite good, and a bit more modern on a size 6 form. The beading is identical on each side of the dress, lines up in a perfect mirror. What defines the dress is the beaded fringe, which runs, sash-like, shoulder to hem, and hangs long around the hem. It's truly spectacular and rare. The pattern of delicate seed beads and sparkling rhinestones makes up the balance. It's just the thing for your next 20s party, the real deal and so very easy to wear. Slips over the head and has no closures. A note - this dress more than two and half pounds, so its easy to slip on, but harder to get off with out assistance
This will fit a size 0 as show, or be a little curvier on a modern size 6.
Label: None Present
Material: Silk Chiffon
Condition: Good plus to very good minus
This dress is sturdy and ready to wear. There is one missing rhinestone at each side of the neckline one side, leaving small holes, but those are the only such flaws. That same side has two small yellow spots near the drop waist. The opposite side has a small number of beads missing on the shoulder, and one small spot below the drop waist line. There are about seven strands of beaded fringe missing in total, but these don't stand out in any way, because the fringe is so heavy and lush. The silk is all very strong and the dress presents beautifully. I find no other flaws to note, this piece presents beautifully.
