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! 😀

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?
Thanks, Theresa! 🙂 The 1920s wigs were made of thin raffia threads.
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.
Thank you so much, April! 🙂
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 😉
Thanks, Suzy! 🙂
I love the 1920’s style! It seems so daring now to be covered from head to toe in sequins. Thanks for joining us for the #Dreamteam linky.
these are my favorite style of hats, and how perfect in sequins to go with the dress!
thanks for linking!
OK How cool and fresh and beautifully-vintage you look in those lime sequins in your 20s inspired look! You are working both the flapper style and that hat!
Welcome by and join my special Celebration Thursday Moda linkup today! It is a good one, plus I think you’d like my look today. 😉 Thank you and have a great weekend! Ada =)
Thank you, Ada!
You simply sparkle in this outfit! The dress is so fun! Thank you for sharing this week at our Encouraging Hearts & Home blog hop.
Very lovely dress and hat! You are an excellent seamstress. Thank you for sharing with us on Party in Your PJ’s.
I love your blog posts, I’m always happy to see them on the Friday Frenzy! Cheer!
Thank you so much, Laura! 🙂
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!
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.
Just gorgeous! And I feel your pain on sequins. We have a dancer in the family, so sequins everywhere are just part of life!
Love the hat and the dress. I had no idea ladies wore wigs in the 20’s. Very interesting.
This is so pretty. I love 20’s styles. Thanks for sharing this at the Inspiration Spotlight party. Sharing
Thanks for sharing, Theresa!
Ahh this is gorgeous! I love gold, and sequins, and you look lovely! Gorgeous photos!
Thanks so much, Laura!
Perfect! You might not like sewing sequin fabrics, but you did a wonderful job. Absolutely lovely!
Thank you so much!
