Beaded silk charmeuse caftan, 1920s

What a treat to find a stylish 1920s dress that can be worn by a full figured woman! The caftan can also be belted and worn if you are more petite. There are slits on each side, near the waist, through which to run a sash.

The midnight blue charmeuse caftan is embellished with wide bands of glittering navy bugle beads. Some of the beads are loose or missing but not many. I will include the beads that fell off during photography. This would be a very easy and quick repair, raising the retail value to about $490.

The caftan closes on one shoulder with snaps. I love the sexy open shoulder sleeves.

The condition is almost excellent. You just need to replace some beads and add a sash if desired.

One size fits all.
It measures: 56" circumference and 50" from shoulder to hem.
