🔸1920s Yellow Firework Print Silk Dress
This is very as-is with patched tears and holes. Underarm fading. One belt look still attached with belt. I love the neckline and flutter collar! Could easily salvage for another project. Colors are yellow, brown, white, and pink.
44" bust, 42" dropwaist, 45" long.

Monsieur magazine, Janvier 1920, Modèle de Damien, vareuse à manches raglan pour yacht, en cheviotte, souple bleu marine, martingale sur les côtés, pantalón flanelle blanche avec pli relevé sans coup de fer. As long as clothes make the man, the dandy will continue to cast his shadow into the twenty-first century. He may at times seem like a pale shadow, an outline without actual content - the ghost of an apparition of a man: superficiality remains, after all, one of the more superficial attributes ascribed to the dandy. But in an age when history and heritage are fading, where appearances are looked upon as deceiving while also accepted as truth, and where rebellion and conformity exchange masks, the legacy of the dandy remains illuminating. Given high capitalism’s reduction of being to having, there is even a sort of Sartorial aura to this figure of the dandy, who two centuries ago broke down barriers between aesthetics and the everyday, renounced the “busy life” of production and utility, and instead turned his own life into a work of art
Spent a sunny afternoon playing photographer - thanks to lovely Hannah for braving the chilly breeze in this summery 1920s style linen dress. Like the look? Its for sale on the Tammy Twinkletoes Etsy store! #napierartdeco#1920sfashion
It's the roaring 20s for #fallforcostume Day 2: Time Travelers. Flapper dresses are the most requested item at the shop so we busted out the fringe and made a few. I still have some frocks from Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries on our "to build" list because they're so fun to design.
SOLD Amazing #1920s#corduroy#velvet#embroidered#egyptianrevival#hieroglyphic swirl motif #cocooncoat !!!!
This is one of the best examples I've acquired in years, of a completely *wearable* "everyday coat" that will stand up to modern day use (due to its materials) yet *completely elegant*, refined, #flapper chic, at its best - a perfect example of the time period terms of design. Even more appealing-it also lined in the softest blue/grey flannel ! so cozy. ☃️❄️🌬This will be the perfect fall/winter coat for someone. I love the slightly #asymmetrical design in the neck/collar, and that you can wear the collar up flared, or down showing black- and achieve two completely different vibes. This coat is a smaller women's size bust to about 39-40" (remember it's a cocoon coat! So you need to be significantly smaller!) the total length to 42. Sleeves 23" In my opinion this is best for a 0-6 us -it is shown on a size 4 mannequin unpinned.
I didn't try this on, because I'd keep it. 🌚🐵🙈🙉🙊I love pieces like this, that you can wear comfortably without being stressed you're going to move wrong.......and destroy it. This piece is *solid* and the most beautiful shade of merlot wine. #rarevintage#1920sfashion#1920svintage#flapperstyle#decofashion#antiqueclothing
If you're thinking that this dress' tight bodice and wide skirt conform to the fashion of the 1950s. Surprisingly, this type of dress, called a Robe de Style, was fashionable decades earlier during the 1920s. Responding to the straight, boyish style of the dominant 1920s fashion, this trend offered a slightly more feminine alternative with a voluminous skirt. The accompanying bodice could either fit snugly and end in the waist, as shown by this dress worn by silent film star Betty Compson, or could have a straight silhouette with a drop waist. While some Robe de Style gowns with a straight, drop waist body look quite beautiful, many designs looked somewhat peculiar and required extensive hoops or underskirts to keep their shape. If you are watching 'Downton Abbey', keep an eye out for Rose's Robe de Style ballgowns. Compson is photographed by Lansing Brown with a Boston Terrier.
