There are lots of lovely 1920's garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful and exceptional 1920's museum quality sheer silk-chiffon dance dress. Iridescent glossy beads make up the most gorgeous scenic pattern featuring over-sized roses and colorful butterflies. The sweetheart illusion bodice has a heavily adorned neckline and cap-sleeves trimmed with adorable beaded loops. This same loop design is continued around the hemline. The scalloped skirting really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. We added many pictures because words can no fully describe the beauty. So breathtaking and rare!

This antique 1920's custom-made flapper dress is in very good condition with no stains or discoloration. The garment slips over the head with side snap closures. Only sign of age are weak silk around some seams; the shoulder seams which has been professional repaired. I do not think the sweetheart under slip is original to the dress but is included and presents beautifully. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. This dress is over 100 years old and is truly sensational.
