This is similar is style to a number of our evening tops which date from the 50s; however, the style of this one seems to me to be Indian-influenced, so I am dating it slightly later. Lined throughout is cotton, this top is made from silvery-blue silk, heavily embroidered with pearl and silver coloured beads.
Slightly fitted, it's a tee-shirt shape with short sleeves and little side slits. Although generally in excellent condition, there are one or two tiny runs in the fabric, which we have tried to show in the photographs; certainly, the beads all appear to be intact.
It fastens with a zip at the back. It's quite heavy and exotic-feeling to wear - makes you feel special! There are no labels. It would best fit a modern size 12-14: it measures 39 ins/99 cms at the bust, length 18 ½ ins/47 cms.
