1920s Beaded Blooms Dress


Wonderful beaded cotton dress from the 1920s in very wearable "as is" condition. So much beading! Pretty floral pattern that completely covers all surfaces of the dress. I have heard from two sellers who had almost the exact same dress with a House of Adair label though this dress does not have a maker label so I can not 100% attribute it to that fashion house. Overall the dress is in sound, wearable condition and perfect for a wedding or special party, best for occasional wear. Some bead loss and loose beads as might be expected from this amount of bead coverage. The cotton fabric has scattered areas of pulling particularly at the waist, it was also taken here but I have not attempted to unstitch it, a couple of tiny, fairly well concealed hand repairs and the armholes which I had strengthened due to some pulling. Because the dress is rather draped and a nice, large size the pulling should not be a significant problem when worn, structurally the fabric is strong and the immense detail on this piece very well conceals the issues. Sold as is, I have many photos of the dress, please contact the shop with specific queries or for close ups.
