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 beadwork is a treasure trove of needle art. The beading, made up of five different mediums, showcases a divine floral pattern. The exacting perfection of the purple, blue and pink color combination is beyond compare, while the gossamer delicacy of the metallic-gold sequins have 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.
