hemlock vintage clothing Wonderful 20's Beaded Black Chiffon 
2S050 
        Gorgeous 1920's black chiffon gown with incredible bead work. This dress looks as though it has never been worn. The underarms and seams are in mint condition. The beads consist of clear seed and bugle glass beads and the bead work is 99%. The only fault is a couple of tiny mends to the lower skirt area, which are not noticeable because of the draped fabric in this area. The bead work begins at the neckline with swirls and lines dotted with rhinestones. The beads on the front neckline form a V. Wide bands of beads trim the underarms. Three columns of beads run down the front of the bodice to the dropped waistline (same design on the back). In between these lines are very nice beaded and rhinestone flowers. The dropped waist has swirls of beads with rhinestone centers. In the center of the skirt, both front and back, and on both sides, there are wide beaded columns with several lines of rhinestones at the top, looks very much like a Corinthian capital. This column of beads runs from the waistline to the hemline. In between the columns, the fabric is fluted making a beautiful flowing skirt. The dress does not come with a slip. A large size, which is rare for clothing from the 20's. This item has beautiful bead work and is in amazing condition for its age.
