1920s Gold Sequin Evening Cloche

1920s Gold Sequin Evening Cloche

I made a matching cloche for my 1920s gold sequin dress.

I like how the dress and cloche turned out but I don’t like sewing sequin fabrics because it’s as messy as velvet fabric! The whole room was covered in gold sequins! And it’s not as nice as it sounds! 😉 The cut through sequins are sharp and stick to everything.

My sequin evening cloche is inspired by the following antique 1920s sequined evening cloche hats: 1920s evening cloche with gold sequins, 4-part crown; 1920s “Made in France” gold sequin cloche (scroll down); 1920s flapper girl with evening cloche; another 1920s photograph of a flapper with evening cloche and 1920s turban-style evening cloche with gold sequins.

It’s funny how women in the 1920s could change their hair color for one evening! Even two-colored hair was possible! 😀

  1. Wow! Great dress and hat. And I had no idea women wore those colored wigs in the 20s. Those pinterest photos of the wigs are fascinating. What were they made of?

  2. What a beautiful dress, and the cloche is absolutely gorgeous, Lina. I can just imagine how much of a mess the sequins made but it was definitely worth it! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful historic outfit with us at the Hearth and Soul Link Party. I hope your week is going well.

  3. The era between the 1920s and 1950s was my favourite, stylise! I loved the femininity of the clothes then. This cloche and dress are absolutely stunning and I can so imagine you being completely covered head to toe – and the room around you – in sequins lol!! I bet it took ages to clean up 😉

  4. I love the dress! Aren’t you clever – that looks so great. I went to a big band on Saturday night and they were all tassly 20’s dresses. I decided I wanted one too -I’m all Gatsby!

  5. Love this. There is a huge part of me that wishes we still dressed like this. Thanks for sharing in our To Grandma’s House We Go DIY, Crafts, Recipes and more link party! Hope to see you next week.
