Some pictures of my 1920s black lace dress which I’ve sewn some years ago.
The materials I used are: sheer black floral lace, black chiffon, and pink, gold and beige seed beads.
My main inspiration was this pretty 1920s black lace dress.
Here you’ll find my tutorial how to make an original 1920s faux bob with long hair.
My dress has black chiffon godets (1920s white lace dress with chiffon godets). The V-shaped chiffon scarf is just attached with safety pins, so I can also wear the dress without.
The hem I finished with a 1920s imitation picot hem.
Because the lace dress is very sheer I’m wearing a skin-colored slip underneath.
Here are some more of my inspiration for this dress: four antique 1920s black floral lace dresses: early 1920s mixed lace dress, lace dress with beaded belt, V-neck dress with flounced skirt and a 20s or 30s lace dress.
This pink beaded belt buckle or brooch was my main inspiration. The beaded ornament has a fabric backing onto which I stitched pink, gold and beige seed beads. It’s attached with a safety pin to the dress.
