1920's Black bead and sequin flapper dress. This dress has sequins and beads from shoulder to the scalloped hem. low round neck line both back and front. Sleeveless. Just above ankle length. The sequins and beads are attached to a fine black tulle. The dress is lined in black silk crepe. The arm holes on the dress are lower than average . This is so your arm is not rubbing on the beads and sequins. The crepe lining shows under the arms. it looks to me that all the beads and sequins are in tack. This dress is a work of art. The dress is very heavy. This dress should be stored in a box not on a hanger. 36 inch bust 40 inch hips. 46 inches long from shoulder to hem. Excellent Condition.
