Chic Fashions from the 1920's

 
I went with women's fashion for this week's SepiaSaturday.

 
This were pictures I took at a museum in Vancouver last April.  The ones I have included here are mainly in the 1920's.

 
When I look at the post for this week, I can't help but wonder how well off the women were that were able to purchase these beautiful dresses, not like that poor lady by the cardboard hut in the picture.

 
Mostly the creations are from the States, but this lone entry in a polka dot dress designed in Vancouver in the '20's.

 
Any of these stylish dresses could be worn today, they are classics.

 
Such elegance, wish we would go back to wearing such chic fashions nowadays.

  2. These are beautiful. I would love to have a selection of them or recreate them and bring them back into fashion now. Thanks for sharing; neat post!

  3. What an interesting twist on the theme. Those are gorgeous dresses. It was fun to see each one and picture who wore them and for what occasion.

  4. I doubt whether the lady by the cardboard hut ever saw one of these but they certainly look nice. I have to admit that I did not associate the SS picture and this beautiful display of dresses at first but why not? It is a creative twist on the theme!

  5. Great dresses. They are all rather loose-fitting in style much like the cardboard hut lady. But, that is where the resemblance ends. These fashions are fab.

  6. I'm sure the poor woman in the prompt never saw a dress like these beauties.

  7. What a contrast with the woman in the prompt - the hats as well as the dresses.

  8. The dresses are indeed beautiful but I have to say I never admired the shapelessness of the fashions then. Mind you, you can't tell what sort of figure the lady in the prompt has either as she's so bundled up!

  9. By the way Rosie I see you still have word verification switched (you may not be aware unless somebody tells you). Most of us at Sepia Saturday have switched it off with no ill effects. If you ensure that you have moderation switched on instead you can blast the odd spam that escapes bloggers othewise excellent spam filter.

    Nice to see you back :)

    1. Hi Little Nell--I have checked my security and it does say that the status is OFF. I don't know why it says it is on??

  11. Gorgeous dresses! This is my favourite era for clothing. Have you ever seen the BBC drama, "The House of Elliot"?

  12. @Kat--No, but I know I like it already! I love fashion. I do a bit of sewing, just finished a Victoria blouse with many many tucks. I hope to attend a Christmas Victorian Tea at an Inn in town around Christmas.

    1. What elegant dresses! The lovely 1920 styles remind me of what the actresses wear in the Masterpiece series, Downton Abbey. My favorite is the gray dress photographed alone.
