The allure of this stunning cream silk chiffon 1920's blouse surely lies in the perfect play between the cool gleam of the intricate glass beading set against the pearlescent sheen of the contouring beadwork.
The rounded neckline is framed to either side by wide shoulder straps, that join the blouse in its straight line cut. Embellished with silver and pearlescent beads, in a circular design, and finished with a silver beaded fringing hemline, this piece showcases the incredible craftsmanship and design of the era.
This blouse is made of silk chiffon and is sheer.
