1950s Beaded Edge Green Coat Dress

What is fabulous about this piece is that it is an amazing dress that can double as an evening coat giving you twice the styling options! Made of a pale green silk satin it is wonderfully constructed. The inside seams are so well finished you could almost wear this inside out! It has a waistless sheath like shape and I love the offset closure. It opens completely hence the ability to wear it as a coat or dress. The entire front has an edging of hand places pieces that are each edged with beads and faux pearls. This ia repeated on each cuff. A really lovely and wonderful item! Excellent condition!
