Mid-century Gene Shelly designer garments are in a class of their own. They are always fully-beaded by hand and fit to flatter the figure. This late 1950's treasure is fashioned in the most stunning turquoise blue color, featuring iridescent sequins. The base is an ultra-soft wool knit. This beauty is then embellished with a stunning floral motif of sparkling white glass beads. Though the low-cut plunge neckline with the hourglass fit is rather seductive, the 3/4-length sleeves give it a balanced elegance that Gene Shelly is known for. This is the type of garment celebrity vixens, like Marilyn Monroe, made infamous. So timeless and a rare find in such a stunning color.
