Beaded Silk Midnight In Paris Dress S


Drop dead gorgeous 1920s sheer black silk chiffon dress with an intricate floral maze and geometric hand beaded design. Lean and effortless flapper silhouette is loosely bloused at the top with a wide waist yoke that snaps at the sides, and swingy knee length skirt. The beading gives this dress a wonderful substantial weight! Looks like a dream when worn over a black slip. Double side closure holds the yoke up with 4 small snaps and a notched tab.
