Woven Lace Flapper Dress


This dress, designed in the fashion of a 1920s flapper dress, was hand-woven on a floor loom. Using linen, in the colors of gold-wheat, and white, I wove a two yard piece of fabric using the brooks boquet lace weave, with plain weave. I then carefully cut and pieced the fabric to create the garment above.

I love the look of the whole flapper era. You really have some talent there girly.

I just wanted to know to what extent you create these dresses, and am considering including them in my blog (with your permission of course).

You can contact me through my blog. The link is as follows:
