    early 1920s ethereal masterpiece. The unique unstructured style is strikingly modern yet the abundance of silk-taffeta cutwork and handmade white irish-crochet is a treasure trove of antique needle art. The bodice has the most amazing low-cut plunge illusion winged sleeves design. The back is just as fabulous as the front with its row of mock covered-buttons and waist-bow.
