Today I finished my 1920s style beaded dance purse.

It’s an accessory for my 1920s mint green taffeta robe de style. And I used the same taffeta fabric of the dress also for my bag.

The dance purse is beaded on both sides. On one side I added a beaded stumpwork flower. The design of my 1920s dance bag is inspired by this 1900s Worth dress with water lily flowers floating on water.

The purse is completely sewn by hand. The bag has also a beaded tassel, which 1920s beaded dance bags often had.
