There are lots of lovely antique garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful and ultra seductive 1920's museum quality fully beaded sheer cotton-net dance dress. Thousands of glossy black sequins cover most of the dress with an absolutely stunning large-scale beaded floral motif around the waistline. This scenic design, all done by hand, in shades of sapphire blue and lilac purple is also trimmed with alluring over-sized jet black beads. This workmanship is of the highest quality and must have taken weeks to complete. The shoulders are adorned with beaded butterflies that act like a cap-sleeve and the effect is breathtaking. The scandalous open-sides with asymmetric pointed skirting really sets this dress apart from others during this time period. We added many pictures because words can not fully describe all the details of this masterpiece. I wouldn't be surprised to learn this creation is from a French haute couture house. A wearable work of art!

This 1920's custom-made dance dress is in beautiful wearable condition with no stains, discoloration or holes. The garment slips over the head and the two panels only attach at the waistline. Only sign of wear is some missing beadwork which is not noticeable when worn. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. This dress is a 100 year old truly sensational, wearable investment.
