Vintage Silk Dress Gold Metal Thread Embroidered Tangerine Boho Gypsy Indian Art Sundress
This is a stunning dress, with amazing metal thread embroidery. The thread is actually micro gilt metal strips wrapped around a cotton thread creating super thin metal thread. The colorful scrolls in red, purple and green are hand embroidered threadwork. All the flowers are 3d gold gilt metal thread embroidery. There is a subtle puff to the top of the shoulders/sleeves. Which was hand-stitched into a beautiful pattern that runs down the front of this artistic boho silk dress. This has pretty 3/4 sleeves with decoration and beadwork. This is made of dark orange tangerine silk almost all of the detailed stitches are hand done. Dating this around 1938 due to the fit, and metal embroidery popular at the time.
