Cute and Unique 1920's Overdress

From the seller:

This auction is for a great vintage, if not antique ladies dress ~ perfect for lovers vintage clothing! This piece and others we now have listed were recently purchased at a rural Kansas estate auction. This piece:

exquisite silk fabric topped with extensive beading
seed beads and bugle beads in black on a gray white ground ~ may have been blue at some point but overall fading to gray
features large ovals that have a silk belt running through them at the waist
the hemline has long splits up to nearly the waist
just a few tiny holes or snags noted and just a few loose or missing beads
no tag
side snaps under the arm on one side
measurements are approximate ~ when laying flat it measure approximately 21 inches from underarm to underarm and 40 inches from the shoulder seam to the hemline
straight from the auction ~ I have not laundered

From Me:

This is so 1920's that even the 1920's can't stand it. :-)
