New Dresses from the 1920s and 30s

Do you like the fashion of the 1920s and 30s? You aren't alone. These silhouettes get revived every few years or so in some variation. The drop waist come sback in , as does the boyish look, and the figure conscious bias cut has almost never left. The 1920s very kind to the thinner, straight figure and the 30s were good for the curvy gal, who was toned, but didn't have a tiny waisted, hourglass figure. Both could be very forgiving of the more mature woman if she chose carefully. I have come to really like the styles of these decades. And so do the collectors- I have trouble keeping 1930s in stock at all, and 20s isn't far behind.

This 1920s black satin dress with metallic trim and the apron styling is a favorite, but I am a bit of a magpie, and it does have shiny old gold, so that is no surprise.
