The dress has is a light and billowy black silk pleated over gorgeous panels of lace. The sleeves are open panels of silk that billow down the shoulder. The longest drape is weighted down with a cluster of beads. The lace is hand basted in separate panels to the front and back and drapes beautifully between the layers of silk. The lace is in tip top shape with only some light dye transfer from the black silk.
The beading on the dress is extensive! It is all hand done with gorgeous black glass beads. There are a few loose beads here and there but nothing noteworthy. This dress preserved the original hand-sewing parts as well as the machine sewing alterations. The dress is in very good condition Of course it is delicate in nature (silk, hand beaded /lace and all) but is in good condition and can be worn.
There are a few tiny holes in the gauze lining/reinforcing panels but that is hidden in the inside of the dress. The dress and lace are solid.
A few nicks on the sleeve of the dress and here and there but nothing that takes away from the overall integrity or function of the dress. It is snapped on the left side on the outside shoulder and the inner lining has snaps as well. I measured the dress inside out so you have the lining measurements.This is the perfect dress for those ladies who love the 20-s, their fashion and spirit and want to be totally original and unique.
