This was such a dream of a dress in its day, real Great Gatsby stuff but unfortunately during its long life it has suffered for love and now has quite a bit of shattering on the shoulders and a patch in the front where the buckle was attached so now it is really a study piece. But what a study piece, the amazing beading is in perfect condition on the skirt and I have seen another website where someone turned a dress like this into a skirt which is certainly possible if someone had the skills. The diamanté buckle comes with the dress but is no longer attached, I guess the weight of it was shredding the delicate chiffon of the gown. Even if you only want to hang it somewhere for inspiration, this is truly an incredible dress and the ghosts of more than one long and elegant party night hang around its beaded hemline!

This dress sold on my etsy shop…
