Late Edwardian Beaded Silk Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Silk is in very clean strong condition. There are a few minor repairs which don't really show in the pictures nor when wearing. The silk is as soft and luxurious as the day the dress was made. The elastic waistband allows this soft silk to float comfortably on the body (elastic was actually in use going back to the Victorians) The weight of the metal embroidery and beads add to the drape of this beautiful silk.
