Today I finished my 1920s style beaded dance purse.

It’s an accessory for my 1920s mint green taffeta robe de style.

I used the same taffeta fabric.

I also used the turquoise taffeta fabric as lining for the purse.

The dance purse is beaded on both sides.

The design is inspired by this 1900s Worth dress with water lily flowers floating on water.

On one side I added a beaded stumpwork flower.

The bag has also a beaded tassel, which 1920s beaded dance bags often had. On my pinterest board you’ll find more 1920s beaded bags and dance purses.

The wrist bag has a 2-step snap closure.
