Super cute pink 1920's dress

From the seller:

VTG Antique 20s beaded silk fushia flapper dress, Great Gatsby, M-L

Today I am posting 1920s dress from my private collection.

A great representative of American jazz culture, this powdery fushia dress was discovered in New York about ten years ago.

This beautiful pink silk chiffon dress is decorated with silver-gray and white beading. (Fine and subtle combination of colors!)

A wonderful beaded strap hangs decoratively down the back, while tying nicely in front.

The silk chiffon is a strong pink - the first two photos show its correct shade (Electric light adds yellow shade to other pictures.)

Condition: Great!
The fabric is strong, no tears, no stains or weakening.
There is some faint yellowing on arm opening hem, and a tiny period repair-restitching there (see photo # 8 ). All unseen when the dress is worn.

On this enlarged photo (#8) you may see hand stitching in the hem.

I found one tiny pin hole near the neckline and three near the arm hem--so small, they do not show on photos.
Those imperfections are minor, not seen when the dress is worn and, in my opinion, absolutely ignorable.

The fabric is a bit sheer. In the photos what seem to be some darker areas of the silk are just a shadow of the beading from the opposite side.

The last photo shows a similar dress from the collection of rare pieces in the Metropolitan Museum of New York Design Institute.

Flat measurements:

LENGTH - 40"

Underarm to underarm in front - 25”

Waist (sunken) - 39” round

For best descriptive detail, please, enlarge the photos.
