WOW! Here is a great piece of clothing history in IMMACULATE condition! Absolutely one of a kind, you'll never worry if someone will wear the same dress as you! The whole dress is made from lightweight pinstriped cotton sateen, where every other stripe as either matte or gloss finished. The sleeves sit at the very edge of the shoulder and are slightly gathered, then fitted at the hem. The neckline is decorated in 1" wide fine cotton lace trim, and just below it two strands of opalescent twisted glass beads and swarovski crystals. At the left side of the neckline, a cotton lace bow is secured with freshwater pearls and more swarovski crystals! The second strand of beading dangles and sways as you walk :) The torso is fairly straight from the bust to the dropped waist, with two lines of cotton lace going down from each shoulder to the scalloped waist line. These strand of lace are sewn down with exquisite beading of twisted glass tubes, swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls. On the left hip, in front there is a small oval of freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals with two dangling strands of twisted glass beads spurting out and ending in a pearl and crystal. On the left hip, in the back, is another cotton lace bow, with long dangling tails, and is secured by a spray of freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals. I have up close pictures of all these details, please ask to see them.
Then begins the lovely skirt! It is attached at the hips, with sweeping scallops of the cotton lace trim, and at each point begins another flap or fishscale of the pinstriped cotton, trimmed out in the same cotton lace trim. The interior of the skirt is a fairly sheer cotton voile lining.
This dress is in PERFECT UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL condition. It is nearly 100 years old, and I really have never seen one is such excellent condition, no rips, tears, stains r odors on this prized beauty.
The dress just slips over the head, no fastenings.
I used genuine Swarovski and genuine freshwater pearls for the beading with unbreakable beading thread. The dress is original from the 1920s. The two spot of heavy beading are backed with silk satin, also from the 1920s, so that the beading never tears at the delicate cotton sateen.
