OMG! Black Netted 1920's Gown

From the seller:

D442, Phenomenal 1920's Deco Platter Sequined Tunic Over Dress: This tunic was created to wear over a simple 1920's slip. It could have been black or gold. We probably will never know the original color of the slip. What we do know is who ever wore this dress got a good deal of attention. The body of the tunic is made of silk net ground with gold sequin floral design. The tunic is in very bad condition and I don't think it could be worn. It has numerous holes small and large throughout. Be sure to upsize the photos so you can see the details of the damage. The tunic is attached at the sides in the waist area. It measures 26 inches at that part of the dress. The bust and hip measurements would have depended on the size of the slip. The silk tulle at the hips is dry from age and they have many holes throughout. This dress would probably be best used for design inspiration or to utilize the sequin work in some unique way. The dress will start at .99 with no reserve.

From Me:

Oh. My. I am in love with this dress! I don't care that the netting is pretty much shredded, this baby is still gorgeous. Can you imagine it over a gold lamè slip? Drool.
