“Wonders will never cease” an original dress that has been restored by hand sewing all the beads and sequins onto new cotton net.  


This will glimmer at night as the majority of sequins are irredescent.  


Adding to its indivuality the glass beads are in a wonderful geometric design.


Bust, Waist and Hips 37"

Shoulder to hem 38"

Note the Model in the photos is wearing her own slip which is not included with the dress.
