1970s Susan Small Blue Silk/ Linen Beaded Maxi Dress


Lovely vintage 1970s Susan Small maxi dress in a blue silk and linen mix. There is lovely floral beading on the bodice with rhinestones and pearls mixed in. It features at fitted waist, is fully lined in matching blue acetate and fastens at the back with a zip. Originally retailed in Beales of Bournemouth, a high end British department store. It is in excellent condition, except for some very minor bead loss which have been replaced, and a few marks/very small holes in the lining which are not noticeable when worn.
