80's Bob Mackie Silk Beaded Evening Gown
Exquisitely sleek and, of course hand beaded, with faux pearls, silver bugle beads, and off white sequins set on flesh tone 100 % silk, this pre-worn gown is most gorgeous and sexy!
The rivelets of the “jewels” are in a flowing irregular pattern that completely covers the slim high collar and zippered tight full length sleeves.
A 26” slit on the right leg compliments all baring just the right amount of thigh!
All the jewels are in tact with the exception of the beads at the very top of the slit, that has been stressed and separated a bit. A seamstress will quickly be able to repair and reinforce this when you have it professionally cleaned, which of course you would want to do, since this is a pre-worn gown.

This gown will turn heads as you enter a room…imagine the 2 layered (a sheer silk on the opaque silk) flesh tone revealing only these sparkling rows of beads running up and down the slender body, while flashing a little leg as one steps, and dances... Wow!
