1940s Amazing Full Sequin Pin Up Dress

Absolutely exquisite early bombshell pin up dress that just had to be owned by the most fabulous of girls! Rarely have I seen such a sizzling early piece like this one! Silk crape has been given the all out glamour treatment with squiggling rows of sequins applied from top to bottom. They are applied in stacked little rows so you get two effects - one that wonderful gloss and shimmer from the sheen of the sequins themselves, and two - an almost 3D effect from the opulent use of them! It's cut to follow your curves with an oddly generous waist measurement - works perfect for girls now who don't like to cinch with undergarments like they use to! I think the detail that knocks it out of the park has to be that insane "flame" neckline - a jagged flame like designs runs around the entire collar of the dress. I can't help but think that had to be made for the stage or the movies - its just that glam! Wonderful, rare piece and in excellent condition.
