1920's Beaded Sheer Dress
From the seller:
Absolutely stunning 1920s Beaded Dance Silk Flapper Dress - Carwash Hemline !!!
Gorgeous off white color with white and silver tube and glass beading.This dress was all hand beaded in an intricate free form design of deco pattern. The dress has carwash skirt that is so unusual and very unique. This is not your typical dress from this era!
Measurements are of actual garment, should fit a bit loose:
Dress: Bust 36, waist 40, Hip 40, Length 41, Shoulder 16
Condition: Very good for its age. A few missing beads, few small brakes around the shoulder areas. I found one small snag -please, see the photos. Some bead loss here and there but not large areas, just sparsely. The dress was stored well and it could be restored to its full beauty.
First, I've mentioned this before but it looks like I might need to mention it again. I am not, nor will I ever be (unless it changes it's practices severely) on Facebook. End of story. Period. As a computer professional in RL, I honestly admit to questioning the sanity of anyone that is on that monopoly. Yes, it means I question a lot of people's sanity - FB is just the new AOL with a lot more terrifying security practices. Like keylogging. I know no matter what I say, I'll get a lot of "BUT! BUT! Everyone else is doing it!" because, unfortunately, more people would rather follow the crowd than care about their own online safety. Just know that I will never, ever be there. Ever.
I've never heard/seen it called a carwash hemline. Lol! This is from the later 1920's and probably right around the crash.
