    1920s flapper sleeveless v-neck flapper dress with drop waist, decorated front and back with gold thread embroidered details & scallop hemline. The material is a light weight black crepe, the bow is black velvet lined with black crepe. I believe the gold thread is metallic because it is stiff & a bit rough to touch. The skirt is made of separate panels which have been sewn together, in the front every other panel is solid black with smocking at the top to add fullness.

The 'trims' are made up of thick metallic gold twist satin stitch, raspberry and pink silk tambour embroidery, amazing silver and gold seed beads, and finished with a chain stitch border. The skirt in the back has an additional panel (the decorative one!) that wraps seamlessly around to the front; it remains open at the front on the sides.
