Romantic flapper dresses from the early 20th century are perennial favorites and this one is a show-stopper. The garment's simple unstructured style is so modern yet the fine couture beading is a treasure trove of needle art. The glass beads, made up of six different colors, showcases a divine floral pattern. The exacting perfection of the three-dimensional beadwork is beyond compare, while the semi-sheer black silk chiffon has a magical allure. We are excited to add close detail pictures so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. What a magnificent garment for a stylish woman, who uses her clothing as the material from which to create a work of art.
