This is an incredible late 1940's hand-knit metallic cocktail that is also covered with sparkling floral-motif beadwork. The wool knit has a way of hugging the body that is infinitely flattering. The bodice is an elegant high-neck plunge and elegant short split sleeves. I love the hourglass nipped-waist wiggle skirt. I love the way it gleams in the light! It is one of the most intricate beaded pieces I have ever seen from this time period.
