1960s Beaded Cocktail Dress & Coat Set

Dangling clear glass beads add drama to the neckline and sleeve cuffs of a 1960s cocktail dress and coat set.

Wow, that's a gorgeous color!
I just found a dress and coat set today! They're pale pink with silver top-stitching in a 'looped' pattern on the neckline and the 3/4sleeve cuffs. There are also scalloped patterns on the neckline and cuffs in that same silver stitching. There are small pearls (seed pearls? faux?) on every other loop, and small faceted CZ stones on the ones in between! It's gorgeous. I can't wait for August so I can wear it! Labels say "Carnegie of London". No material tag, but it does say to dry clean and to remove any buttons or detailing, which be difficult to do to get it cleaned...Do you have any at-home tips for getting rid of a musty smell? I'd be happy to send photos if you like. I've been in touch with Jody before. Thanks for your great site!
