Here I present a lovely early 1940s inspired dress in original vintage floral rayon gathered bodice, front and back, collar and the skirt. The light brick coloured yokes and belt in viscose rayon add a great contrast. It features an original vintage bakelite buckle.
It also features fabric covered buttons down the front, padded shoulders and elbow length sleeves.
This sweet little number was made in original printed 1920s cotton voile, with a fun geometric pattern. It has the very popular sailor neckline ending with a small tie. The fitted sleeves also have a nice detail in the cuffs with criss crossing bands.
Ah, the 1920s. One of my favourite eras in fashion history. As I rarely get the chance to make dresses of this bygone era, I sometimes take the liberty to use yours truly as the dummy and what better way than this sweet little number to prove it. A late 1920s style flapper dress, something Ms Bow or Ms Brooks could have worn.
Made in navy wool jersey, the skirt has two godets both front and back, giving it a beautiful flared effect. Tucks at shoulders and the neck at the back. The jabot is made of original printed 1920s vintage silk crepe. The collar unites with the ends of gabot that have been inserted in two slashed openings at front of dress creating an interesting crossed effect. The fitted narrow sleeves have small triangular wedges at the wrists in printed silk crepe. The dress can be worn with a without a belt, here adorned by a beautiful diamond shaped original mother of pearl Art Deco buckle. Fastens with snap fasteners at the side.
