BEADED DRESS c.1925

Evening gowns of the 1920s often consisted of two garments, a contrasting underdress would have added a striking new dimension to this dress. The sleeves show off the dancer's arms and black beads are used to indicate a low waistline and soften the silhouette. The transparent chiffon is embroidered heavily with pink and silver beads. A beaded neck piece is worn around the neck, a popular accessory in the 1920s.
