1960s Hand Done Ribbon, Sequin & Bead Dress

The detail work on this dress was entirely done by hand and it is quite incredible! It is aobviously a high end piece and its label is a Palm Beach designer or shop called Harold Grant. The base is a light knit that I beleive has cashmere in it. Through the knit, literally, are yellow ribbons that are placed to form big circular medallions with a flower suggested at the center of each. Hand placed through and around these are sequins and pearl finished beads. This gives the dress tremendous texture and interest! The fron scoops down and the back scoops even lower leaving quite an expanse of bare skin. The knit ensures that it fits and hugs your curves. It is very, very bombshell-esque and a real beauty! In person the yellow is slightly more lemon yellow then the deeper yellow it has photoed. Really fabulous! Excellent condition

The base is a light yellow knit and it does not have additional lining. It closes with a painted metal zipper. The sequins, beads and ribbon are all applied by hand and I see no bare spots. The measurements are taken flat and shows the comfortable range of each measurement
