This dress is incredible - pure glamour!
Original beaded dress from the roaring 1920's. Completely restored as every bead has been sewn onto a new net to bring it back to life and wearable. Before restoration the weight of the beads on the silk net background made it impossible to pick up without dissintigrating! Some of the original silk can be seen on close inspection.
The skirt is flaired and swings out when turning on a circle.
Waist to hem 42"
Note the Model in the photos is wearing her own slip which is not included with the dress.
Cocoa Couture was established in Cheltenham in 1970 selling antique textiles. Cara acquired the business in 1990. As well as creating beautiful bespoke wedding gowns and lingerie, Cara also spends hundreds of hours restoring vintage and historical clothing giving them a new lease of life to be enjoyed again.
Her love of antique artworks, fabrics and tapestries from the 17th, 18th and 19th Century has also led her to expand and develop her own range of individual silks and fabrics to create unique historically based clothing and handmade accessories - The Cocoa Treasures Collection. All of the designs are printed locally in the Cotswolds in the heart of the UK on the finest pure silks and softest velvets, lovingly finished by hand.
