1950s Beaded Fitted Scoop Back Dress

This beautiful dress is made of a polished cotton that has has extensive bead work applied to highlight the design screened onto the fabric. It is your classic, fitted bombshell dress from this time period and I love how it hugs every curve! The neckline is scooped and the back dips into a low scoop as well. The beads are a combination of seed and tube beads that have been hand applied and are colored and placed to highlight the pattern beneath. Very chic and very pretty! Excellent condition

Fully lined with a white silk through the bodice and a silk organza through the skirt. Closes with a back painted metal zipper. A slit runs up one side.
