A must-have for any "It girl," this Jazz Age beauty is a real show-stopper! Fashioned in a decadent chocolate brown silk, this authentic 1920s sheath dress is covered in thousands of tiny glass seed beads patterned in a brilliant floral motif. An oversize bow adorns the back of the gown just above three tiers of cascading pleats, which is sure to make a dramatic statement as you glide across the room. The bodice is lined in a thin cotton muslin. Like most gowns from the era, this sheath is designed to pull over the head and is fastened at the side with tiny hidden snaps.


Per the style of the era, this dress is meant to be worn loose, not fitted. For an authentic fit, please make sure your actual measurements are less than the listed measurements.

Dress has a few pin holes in the shoulder area and discoloration under the arms. Also has faint water spots/discoloration down the right side of the dress.

Despite these cosmetic flaws, the dress is in wearable condition. Priced accordingly.
