Sneak Peak of Two soon to be released 1920's vintage dance Gowns From GWD




Greetings !
Welcome to Sneak Peak of Two soon to be released 1920's vintage dance Gowns
From Lady Kembri Tomsen of The Curious Seamstress
First Breezy shall show all
Bye Bye Blackbird

"At the beginning of the decade, skirts were still long, almost ankle-length. It was not until 1924 that skirts really became shorter, reaching mid-calf even for evening wear. The shortest skirts of the decade, stopping just below the knee, appeared in 1926-1927. In the last few years of the decade, skirts often used panels, drapes, and pointed segments to achieve uneven hemlines. This led to a lengthening of the hemline by decade's end."*
((please note the details to Lady Kembi's textures, character and flows *always))
Ah Next we come to ..... Lady Kembri's  Saucy Hot little number
1920's vintage dance dress Velma's Jazz
"Short hair was universally popular throughout the decade. Those who chose to retain their long hair wore it pulled back into deep waves over the ears. It was then coiled into a chignon or knot at the nape of the neck. Makeup was obvious, with red lips, powdered skin, and dark eyes.

To approximate the style of the period, look for a low-waisted or straight dress such as a "tank" style or "slip" dress. Add a long rope necklace--preferably pearls. Modern character dance shoes with a small heel are appropriate for this period".*
The flow and fluid texures on the dance floor .. Such Fun !!
In deed .. "All That Jazz"
Both of these darling, beautiful "smokin" little numbers
