Robe de Toile Uni et Fleuri 1925
This is one of my favorite types of twenties dresses! It has contrast, detail, and graceful lines. The bodice is T shaped with an inset front panel bordered with button groups. The skirt is softly gathered… its joining to the bodice is concealed by a belt/sash which ties in a large bow in the back.
The neckline is cut to accommodate a string of beads.. and finally, I think the perfect headwear is a large bow!
I made it in a soft, very vintage silk shantung. This LSDS style looks best made in a fabric which will drape a bit. The contrast should be a small floral as called for in the original directions.
