an amazing hand sewn and hand beaded (front And back!) black deco gown made of what feels like the softest silk ever spun by man plant or insect (but could be a synthetic blend.. man is tricky at spinning things like that).
a Work of Art.
The little darlin' who put so much blood sweat and tears into it nearly 100 years ago certainly knew her way around a needle....
and if she didn't she made it up!
A unique sewing job, to say the least, but structurally sound and soooo impressive! That beadwork!

Soooo much better in person, ladies!

shoulders are 14"
pit to cuff is 19"
bust is 40"
waist is 36"
hips are 46"
length is 47.5"

in wonderful condition, though definitely handmade. you can see the love and devotion in each stitch... really! you'll see!
the front is a tiny bit pilled, but the loose seems have been reinforced so she's ready when you are.

because they loved to go snap crazy back then, this lady features 14 snaps from the right shoulder on down to the hip, and also 3 more at each bead-bedazzled cuff.

so soft and super sweet.
