80’s Hand Beaded and Sequined Black Silk Chiffon 3-D Cocktail Dress With Keyhole Front$115.00- Dresses
Gorgeous black silk chiffon dress embellished with sequins and beads. Circa 1980s.
The silk chiffon is beautifully embellished with hand sewn layered sequins in red, copper, green, and gold creating a 3-D effect and swirly lines of red and iridescent blue bugle beads in a lovely floral pattern as pictured.
The sleeve ends, bottom hem, mandarin collar and keyhole front opening are accented with rows of red bugle beads as pictured.

Shoulder pads are easily removed with a few snips of the scissors if you prefer a natural shoulder line.
