"French Yellow " Vintage 1920's French Yellow Silk Beaded Flapper Dress UK 10

Full of opulent original details, rendered in the most luxurious fashion, this rare 1920's piece is a beauty to behold and never again find.

Her delicate rounded neckline is framed by a sleeveless cut, and a border of geometric beadwork, that runs along the neckline, and down the central part of the bodice. Her dropped waistline is accented by small mock waist ties, embellished with beadwork, along each side seam, that gather small pleats, that drape into the side of the skirt.
The elegant skirt-line boasts a scalloped hem, and is heavily decorated with intricate geometric and abstract beads, in the softest shade of gunmetal silver.
Every detail of this rare dress showcases the opulence of the era

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