1950s Unusual Sequin Cocktail Dress

You see a lot of versions of the sequin LBD and some are atrocious, some are wonderful and then some are wonderful and unusual like this one is. The sequins are sewn onto a knit, which was not uncommon, but this knit has a large weave, giving it almost a raffia type look! The contrast between the glossy black sequins and the highly textured knit is wonderful. The other unusual thing about this one is that it is completely backed in lining so it has more structure then most sequin knit versions of this look. The cut is all femme fatale - a fitted lean pencil skirt is nipped in at the waist and both the front and back are in a deep V. A superb sequin and knit dress and in excellent condition.
