I found this 1920s-style beaded lace dress so pretty, so I bought it. But I found it a bit short.
So I used a piece of leftover, lightweight cotton fabric and attached it at the bottom of the dress just under the tucks and lace.
The fabric looks slightly different in the picture above, but it’s hardly noticeable when the dress is worn.

In the background you can see my antique linen chemise.

I love your website! Ive made an historical copy of a lace flapper dress I want to share on my facebook page for Lavoie Boho. This is a hobby that all began with a box of lace tablecloths I was given a couple years ago. I am slowly using it up! Thank you so much for the inspiration and hair style tutorial. I will be getting the clips ASAP!
Thanks so much, Robin! 🙂
