That’s my 1920s pink floral printed chiffon dress.
Because I couldn’t find sheer floral fabric, I bought two chiffon dresses. I cut apart one of the dresses to make the scarf, the wrap shoulder cape and the belt. The other I shortened and changed the neckline.
The fabric is pretty, lightweight and soft-draping. The dress has lace attached to cover the seams, but it didn’t distract too much from the lines of the 1920s dress, so I didn’t remove it. This floral 1920s dress also has some lace details.
The dress can be worn …
… or with the shoulder wrap cape …
… and the scarf tied round the cloche hat.
This second bodice for the dress has a wrap effect in front and back.
It is gathered at the shoulders …
… and open at the sides.
And it’s gathered into a belt at the hips.
Here’s a 1920s dress with a similar wrap bodice.
The dress is perfect for summer! 🙂
