1950s Hand Beaded Knit Star Burst Gown

This is one of those little jewels from the fifties that when you see on the girl that can carry it off - well your jaw drops! Made of a black knit it is cut movie starlet style with a fitted and long silhouette. The top curves in a shallow scoop and the back has a nice plunging V. It nips in at the waist, though there is no seam there to break the line, and then pours over the hips to the floor in one narrow line. The entire side is hand beaded in a fantastic star burst design that explodes out for the waist - trails of glossy black beads, with each ending in a 3D burst of grey and creamy white beads. It is fantastic, eye catching and in excellent condition.
