I found this in an estate sale for 60 bucks and I was carefully rolling it up to buy it before I even knew what I was doing. lol The beadwork is amazing! Sadly the silk is shattering. I can’t say it would have been a deterrent even if I had stopped to examine it better, because I’m a crazy person. lol Ohh the stories it could tell.... So I’m wondering. Would it be possible to display something like this in a picture frame, behind glass? It’s actually a pretty small sized dress. It just saddens me that these dresses have to be stored in such a way so that you can’t stare at them like the amazing historical pieces of art that they are.
