1920's Brown and Beaded Dress

From the seller:

This vintage Art Deco brown silk chiffon pink shell beaded drop waist flapper dress dates from the 1920s. It is made of a chocolate brown sheer silk chiffon fabric, with iridescent pearl pink beaded shells and bronze beading done in an Art Deco abstract musical note, rising sun, striped spiral pattern design. This beautiful beaded loose fitting flapper dress has a drop waist, with a rounded scoop neckline, sleeveless, with wide open arm holes. It is sheer, unlined and would need a slip underneath. The dress measures 42 inches long, with 40 inch hips, waist and bust. It is in good wearable condition, with some missing loose beads, a few tiny pin holes on the the top and a small hole on the bottom front skirt (see close-up). It is a wonderful wearable piece of Art Deco beaded textile art!

From Me:

This would look fantastic with a pink slip beneath it.
