Willow Hilson Vintage

"Blush & Silver Beadwork" Vintage 1920's Blush Silk Chiffon Beaded Dress UK 8-10 US 4-6


Full of opulent original details, rendered in the most luxurious fashion, this rare 1920's piece is a beauty to behold .

The rounded neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps and a sleeveless cut. The simple straight-line bodice is accented by a central beaded panel, which is framed to either side by matching panels along each side seam, joining each other along the dropped waistline, which in turn is accented by a beaded panel with triangular finishing details. The wonderful beaded embellishments boast white pearlescent beads, surrounding silver lined glass beads, clear glass beads, silver bugle beads and claw set rhinestones, forming a trailing geometrical pattern. The elegant line of the dress gently flares from below the dropped waistline into a full circle bias cut hemline, which drapes  along the silhouette. The back of the dress features a rounded nape, from which the matching central beaded panel joins the back of the dress, between two triangular key hole features, creating a near racer back design. 

This dress is sheer and may need to be worn with a slip to conceal ones modesty.
