Evenings and Special Occasions

Vintage style evening jacket of single georgette, with hand-rolled scalloped hem and cuffs

Bead embroidered with vintage Czech bronze-steel 2 cuts, bugles and gold flat sequins, with a verm background. Verm is a traditional stitch which means the fabric can appear fully beaded without the weight or the cost involved if more beads were used. It was an invaluable technique which helped the actresses and dancers in Hollywood, who often had to use leaning boards to rest from the weight of their gowns.
