I just wanted to share some photographs of this divine beaded flapper dress from the mid 1920's. It's come from my father-in-law who's collected antiques and linens for years and years. He told me about this dress at Christmas and would I be interested in it - is the Pope Catholic???? There is some damage to the netting fabric underneath the arms, probably caused because of the weight of the beading. I'm looking into having the dress restored because it's generally in fabulous condition as you can see. It's been carefully stored in acid-free tissue paper. Unfortunately my F-I-L doesn't know the history of the dress as he purchased it from a vintage dealer some 25 years ago. I can only imagine the wonderful lady that wore it. I would love to know what parties this dress has been to. If only it could speak! . . . . .
