Pat Sandler Beaded Party Dress
Brand Pat Sandler
Pat Sandler formal dresses of this era in the 60s were just incredible, and this dress is a perfect example.
At first pass glance one may be blinded by the resplendent gold brocade, glass beadwork and shimmering crystals, but this dress has so much to offer, And the craftsmanship, tailoring and quality is unparalleled.
The dress has a deep v-neck with the furthest points of the collar sitting slightly out on the shoulders, as if a boat neck and deep v-neck cut were combined in one. This has a very flattering effect on the chest and neckline, showing off a bit of collarbone as well.
The dress also has short, cap sleeves that are just so perfectly shaped to cup the shoulder blade and top of the arm. From the empire waist up the dress is made of a sumptuous gold and bronze brocade with a gift-box-blue paisley. Large gold and silver beads and smaller glass seed beads outline and accent the paisley worked through the gold embroidered brocade.
The dress has an empire waist punctuated with a satin bow. From below the waist, delicately shaped gathers flare out into a columnar skirt that hits at our just above the knee for most heights.
The dress is fully lined through the bust in silky satin.
We've had this dress previously in our line and found that it really popped on anyone, the playful color combination is flattering to so many hair color and complexions, it's surprisingly versatile.
