"Swirling Beadwork" Vintage 1940's Navy Blue Wool Beaded Dress UK 10 US 6

This truly breathtaking 1940's navy blue wool dress, with trailing glass beaded accents in shades of white, clear, grey and pearlised cream, is a rare dress to behold and never again find.

Her slim mandarin collar is framed by the most incredible scalloped beaded collar, that frames the front of the dress, and ends along the back of the shoulder seams. Her full length sleeves are edged with elaborately beaded cuffs, to match the collar, and feature button and loop fastenings.
Her elegant bodice, is accented by a cinched in waistline, that sets off the simple skirt-line, completing this piece, in a true 1940's silhouette.
