1920's Summer Party Dress
From the seller:
Spring green silk beaded flapper dress dating to the 1920. Charming twinkling design with contrasting peach floral appliques that are also embroidered. Side streamers with layers of skirting each layer beaded in the twinkling gold beads, interesting godot insertion sides and back of skirt. As found! with both arm pits damaged (see images) scattered age/storage marks. Uncleaned as found, beautiful beading "made in France" label. Chest measures 38", hips 42" length 43".
This looks lemony yellow on my computer screen. Very much 1920's though.
