Incredible 1960s Sequin & Bead Maxi Dress

This dress is just incredible. Every square inch of it is covered with sequins that are each individually topped with a singe bead at the sequins center. The fabric underneath this layer of sequins and beads is printed with the design that you see and then colors of the sequins fallow that underlying pattern, Because each sequin is topped with a bead the "shine" of the sequins is taken down a notch and it has a more subtle glint and shine then a pieces that would only be sequins would have. I cannot even begin to think of the hours that went into creating this! It is very heavy but not tot he point where it is uncomfortable to wear. Because the weight is so evenly distributed it works well when on. Its cut in a fairly simple, straight sheath so that the cut does not fight with the fabric. Sleeveless, a high straight across neck and a side slit. Excellent condition

Fully lined in blue silk with rayon trim around all the edges. Closes with a back painted metal zipper.
