1920's French Couture Beaded Floral Silk-Chiffon Tiered Waterfall Flapper Dress

About

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 French couture museum quality silk-chiffon dance dress. The watercolor floral-garden scenic design is pure wearable art. The bodice is embellished with glass-beads, whose circular cut creates a dazzling sparkle. The work is entirely hand applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. My favorite detail is the dramatic high to low waterfall hemline. The unique duel-train backside really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. It is amazing that a piece with this amount of presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romance and rare! The pictures say it all. Measurements Bust:34 inches Hips:38 inches Longest Length:47 inches This antique French flapper dress is in excellent wearable condition with no stains or discoloration. Gorgeous hand-finishing throughout. Only signs of age are a few tiny pin-holes to the silk fabric. This dress is over 90 years old and is truly breathtaking!
