Late 1980s vintage black silk dress with car wash hem and abstract arcs of black disk sequins, marked size S.
Detail edging in narrow lines of small black cylindrical beads.
Moderate scoop neck and back, the body has a silk lining, the sleeves do not (and are sheer as a result).
Streamlined fit through thew waist and hips.
Zig- zag hem lengths with overlay sequined sections of silk, adding movement and drama.
Sleeves are about 3/4 length, with uneven hems; the longest points lay on the outsides of the forearms.
The sequined design is not all over- there are areas of silk (or two layers of silk) throughout- while this is photographing as a bit sheer on my white mannequin, black undergarments would address this in person.
Lord & Taylor private label, 100% pure silk, made in India.
Condition is very good- while there are likely a few missing sequins here and there, there are no areas of missing or damaged disks or beads.
The lightweight, gauzy silk base makes this beaded dress comfortable and easy to wear- ready to debut at your next cocktail party or formal event.

16" shoulder seam to shoulder seam

29" waist
approximately 35.5" hip allowance
