Vintage 1960s Beaded Bell Sleeve Gauze Dress

One of our favorite dresses.  Lightweight "natural" gauzy cotton.  Cotton blend with lace and embroidery trim on the sleeves and inset in the back of the skirt.  Wide sleeves.  Empire waist with a back tie.  Beaded and hand-painted panel on the bodice.  Tons of fabric in the skirt.  Sweet touches of being handmade.
