This incredible beaded gown was made in the 1990s, in the style of the flapper dresses from the 1920s. It has the somewhat boxy, drop-waist flapper silhouette, with bias cut chiffon keeping it flattering by skimming the body perfectly. The square neckline is also borrowed from 1920s dresses. The flutter sleeves have a fairy-like quality— the entire dress is lined except for the sleeves, with the sheerness of the chiffon emphasizing their gossamer nature. I love that the sheer sleeves are traced in beadwork to emphasize their romantic movement. The dress features intricate beading all over, which is so beautifully done. The accordion-pleated godet creates a flattering, mermaid-like shape from the hips down. Note that there is no closure and the dress slips on overhead.

Measurements: Please note that this will fit a range of sizes well, as the bias-cut naturally stretches (and shrinks) with the curves of the body. This will likely best fit a size Small and Medium but please refer to the below measurements, which reflect an approximate range.

Chest: about 33-36"

Waist: 27.5" hanging, up to 33" stretched (30" laid flat)

Hips: up to 42"

Length: 58" from shoulder to front hem; hem is about 2" longer in the back

Good vintage condition overall, with some minor loss to beading, primarily at the neckline/sleeves. It is still perfectly wearable as-is, but one could take the same beads from elsewhere (towards the bottom of dress) and attach them where they're missing. There is some minor discoloration at the hemline, which is to be expected in vintage gowns. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
