1920's Ocean Blue Sequin Beaded Sheer Net-Tulle Mermaid Flapper Gown
Breathtaking French museum quality sparkling net-tulle mermaid flapper gown dating back to the mid 1920's. The ocean blue color palette touches a deep chord in our collective aesthetic consciousness. As fashion lovers, we never tire from antique beadwork; it will always be fresh to modern eyes. The garment's simple fluid structure is so modern; the fine fantaisie paillettes sequins are a treasure trove of needle art. I love the sparkling prong-set rhinestones and fuchsia beaded glass accents which compliment the royal blue color effortlessly. There is so much detail in the fabrication, you can tell this masterpiece was created with love and care. The bodice has a chic low-cut plunge sleeveless design. This flows into flattering zig-zag panel skirting that is sheer to the floor. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. This rare garment is in beautiful wearable condition; something that is becoming more and more of a rarity as time goes by.
