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 Gabrielle Sevals Paris Couture sheer cotton-net dance dress. Iridescent glossy sequins are mixed with brilliant glass tube-beads whose faceted cut creates a dazzling sparkle! The complex pink floral garden motif that runs fully around the drop-waist is true wearable art at its finest. The work is entirely hand-applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. Craftmanship like this takes weeks. I love the sheer bodice design and flirty side-slit skirting. We added many pictures so one can appreciate this masterful achievement.

This antique French beaded dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, rips or discoloration. The garment slips over the head with no additional closures. There is some minor missing beadwork and a few tiny breaks in the net which is not noticeable when worn. Though this garment is missing her label, we had almost the identical dress labeled Gabrielle Sevals Paris. Please message for detailed pictures. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. 100 years old and is truly gorgeous.
