This beautiful 1940's mulberry toned crepe silk dress, embellished with sparkling black glass beads, is a rare piece to behold.

Her small open V neckline is framed by small turned down lapels, and strong beadwork along the yokes, that scatters along the front of the neckline and bodice.
Her 3/4 length sleeves, are edged with small slits along the cuffs.
Her tailored bodice, is accented by pleats along the sides of the bust-line, drawing the eye to the fitted cut and cinched in waistline.
Her elegant skirt, is accented by a border of beadwork beneath the waistband, that scattered lightly along the hipline, mirroring the embellishments along the top of the bodice.
The back of the skirt, features an inverted kick pleat, adding wonderful movement to the dress.
