1920s Dresses

Yesterday I purchased the fabrics for my 4 1920s dresses at the PA Fabric Outlet in Leola, PA. They have the loveliest fabrics and at such great prices! I was able to find lots of fabrics and trims that I'm just thrilled with!
The original dress above is my inspiration for the leading lady in the Dance Light scene that I'm designing costumes for. I love the way the skirt is cut. Below is a back view of the dress. I'll be draping the pattern for this dress. It will be made of either ivory chiffon or a beautiful silvery lightweight sheer fabric. I purchased both fabrics because I couldn't decide which I like most! I purchased white beaded trim to add to the bodice, mid section of the dress to give it the illusion of a beaded dress.

Isn't the back of the skirt so pretty?
