This mesmerising 1960's silver beaded dress, constructed on a white and silver floral lace base, and accented by large silver sequins and small curved sequins, is just the perfect piece to add a touch of sparkle to your cocktail wardrobe.
The rounded bateau cut neckline of the dress is framed by a simple shoulder line. The full length inset sleeves, are edged with small elasticated cuffs, which created a soft pleat along each sleeve edge. The timeless straight cut of the dress is accented by silver glass beadwork, large flat silver sequins and small curved silver sequins in a repeat raised floral pattern, above the lace base. Finished with a plain lace hemline, this incredible dress showcases the craftsmanship and design of the era. This dress is lined in ivory tulle behind the lace base. This dress is slightly sheer and the use of a slip may be required to conceal ones modesty.
