1960s Raw Silk Hand Beaded & Sequin Gown

This is just incredible! The work that was put into creating this outstanding fabric is just wonderful! A off white raw silk base is covered in a stunning pastel design that is dine in a combination of sequins and bead work. It is all done by hand and has a slight raised 3D effect off. I love how they use soft hues of pinks, silvers and blues to create the beautiful effect. The gown is very simple with a high neck that is also embellished with handwork, no sleeves and the cut meant to skin over the body and then flare out as it nears the floor. It is very well made with lots of beautiful hand finishes inside too. The beads and sequins add weight to the dress but it is very comfortable when on. It is just spectacular! Excellent condition.

Filly lined in a white silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finished inside and ribbon finished edging at the interior hem
