From the estate of a lady who knew how to step out in style! This is a simple black sleeveless sheath with spectacular embroidered flowers and beading on the lower half.

There are no labels or tags and I believe it is bespoke, making it ONE OF A KIND! The dress features darts on the shoulders and tucks on the sides at the lower waist. There are tabs with snaps on the inner shoulders for keeping undergarment straps in place. No zippers, so it slides over the head and has a slightly fitted shape due to the side darts. While the cut of the dress is simple, the decoration is stunning!

The bottom of the dress is embellished with 20 oval medallion cutouts encircled by gold-toned lace with draping bronze colored seed beads, further enhanced by multi-colored bead strands along the bottom. Brightly colored free-form embroidered flowers surround the medallions and are also outlined with beads.

While wearable as is, this dress is an excellent candidate for repurposing by incorporating the lower design portion into a new garment or art display. My camera and photography skills could not capture the rich color of the flowers! It is worth the price for the fabric alone!

RARE LARGER SIZE 101214 but easily altered for a tighter fit. BUST - 23.5" under arms across front; SHOULDERS - 23" across back under arms WAIST - 22" across front at top of side tucks LENGTH - Upper back to hem - 45".

Front shoulder to hem - 46 excluding beads. Please check measurements for a good fit. Some strands of hanging beads and beads inside medallions are missing or loose, but look to be repairable with minimal sewing/beading skills.

The embroidered flowers are vivid and stunning on their own even without the beading. There are stains under both arm holes. There are some whitish stains of unknown origin on the rear (not as bright as shown in photo). There are several other minor spots here and there, none severe. It has been stored for several decades and as a result has a slight musty odor. It has not been dry-cleaned, but several days of airing has diminished the odor considerably. Priced accordingly to allow for dry cleaning and bead condition. Please contact me for additional photos or questions. Here are some other suggestions for vintage clothing. RECOMMENDED Tips to Revive Your Item Hang your garment outside in a dry, shaded area for a few days.

Place your garment in a paper bag with newspaper for several days. The newspaper will absorb unpleasant odors.

Take your garment to a reputable dry cleaners. Dry cleaning should remove any smells if you request your item be deodorized. As this item is vintage I cannot guarantee that it was not in a smoking or pet environment in its previous setting. Vintage clothing and accessories may have a musty odor due to its length in storage. My home is pet & smoke free.
