1980s Vintage Royal Blue Art Deco Beaded Trophy Cocktail Dress




Fabulous vintage beaded dress from the 1980s. Bright royal blue bias cut silk chiffon covered in iridescent glass beads and sequins. Straight lined 1920s style cut. Short sleeves and kick pleat accents below the knee on back and sides. Zips half way up the back with hook/eye at the neck. No shoulder pads. Fully lined. In very good condition, one or two small spots and a few small areas of linear bead loss, mostly on the back along the zipper. See the last photo.

Tag size is XL but I think this fits more like a medium to large depending on your preference for tight fit. There is a very little stretch to the bias cut.

Waist – 36 inches (91.44 cm)
