EMBROIDERY RESTORATION

Charleston dress from the 30's

 

On the well-preserved rayon dress the

 

embroidered chain stitches, sequins and

 

beads are damaged. 

 

Areas partially restored to distinguish

 

original embroidery and the new

 

reconstructions.

 

Missing pearls of sequins have been

 

reapplied and loose ends are stapled.
