Often the clothes I get tell stories. This one came to me ready to be given up on. Its previous owner wasn't sure there was much life left in it and just hoped someone could find a way for it to shine again.

After cleaning, and while ironing, I began to realize how amazing this dress was. The fabric shines and irons like silk. It is very strong and has no holes or stains. Beautifully crafted, this dress has a regal air to it, with just enough detail to make it stand out from others. Most of the glass beads are well attached, though a small amount on the shoulders are gone. I have reinforced the ends so they do not disappear. The back has a darling detail to draw attention to a whittled waist. The metal zipper zips easily.

This dress is built in the "bullet bust" style,-- please see close up of the bodice to see what I mean. It is reminiscent of the style of clothing from the Hong Kong fashion era of the mid century, with its modest cut, quality, intricate tailoring, exquisite fabric and delicate beading.

Very small 25" waist, 32" bust.

An elegant find.
