Pic # 2 shows a rough drawing about the main three features.

FEATURES' DESCRIPTION:

1.-FRONT HAND EMBROIDERY On SILK (pics 6,7,8 ):
Front bodice has hand beads, glass, pearls embroideries.
The hand embroidered "panel" is about 12" x 10".
I see a couple of tiny spots which are not on the embroideries.Otherwise embroidery is perfect.

2.-CHANTILLY or ALENCON LACE FRONT TIERED FLAPPER FLOUNCE  on SILK( pics 4,5):
Very nice constructed panel. The total measurement from the inside is 12" x 21" .
Flapper flounces are placed on 21" x 9" surface.
The bottom has a strand of beads embroideries ( pic 5).
The bottom hem is been reinforced with some kind of metal so it falls straight down.
A couple of small spots on the dress.
Lace is intact no tears, but it needs to be hemmed in a few places

3.-BOTTOM HAND EMBROIDERED BEADS PEARLS RIM TRIM on SILK (pics 9,10,11).
This nice embroidery goes up to 52" long .
However it's not straight since on the two front sides the design goes up ( see drawing in pic #2).
Beads motif are about 3" wide.
Small loss of beads is shown in pic 10.
Otherwise great no spots during 3" x 52" beads embroideries

MEASUREMENTS Of THE DRESS
Length from center back 48".
Waist 15.5"
Chest bust 1" below armhole 16.5"
Skirt length from waste center back 29"

GENERAL CONDITION OF THE DRESS:
The bodice has armpit stains.
The back skirt has about 6 small spots ( they are NOT located on the embroidery area).
Bottom skirt in not hemmed.
Bodice lace collar looks fine but needs to be cleaned.
Dress itself is banal ( last pic shows the back side which is almost plain), looks unfinished or was used as a petticoat for an important dress.


Good luck!!
