1950s Bead Fringe Hem Silk Wiggle Dress

A really wonderful late forties, early fifties bombshell of a dress that is made of a inky black matte silk satin with little bows embroidered through the fabric. These bows each are accented with a burst of black tube beads in their centers too so you get a subtle glint of the beads when you move. The edge is detailed with a looped bead fringe so every time you move they move! The top is kept simple and sexy with straps for the shoulders and a simple bodice and the skirt has a bit of built in netting just under the waist so that vixen hourglass shape is emphasized. Wonderfully constructed and certainly not your basic black dress! Excellent condition!
