Fabulous Flounces

January 10, 2008


Eye candy courtesy of McCall’s Style News for October 1929- the Paris Fashion Number. I love the strong composition of the front cover (above) and the use of what is effectively shades of just three colours- black, white and yellow.

Although I do own a few 1920’s McCall patterns, they are nowhere near as complex or utterly gorgeous as the ones in this supplement. Take a look at the first page of the supplement below…


What glorious flounces! I particularly like the two designs at the bottom for evening coats, complete with hood, and even more flounces, naturally… They look as if they would be incredibly cosy for winter lounging wear made in velvet.

Click on the thumbnails below for a bigger image of these two designs in close up.

    Hey, I´m doing an art project on the 1920´s fashion, I need some information about it and some designs. Where can I get it? Thanks for the help— this website is really cool…!

      Thanks, Sarah! To start off, I’d recommend heading over to Pauline Weston Thomas’s site,, and browsing the sections for background info on the 1920s. You could also check out more links on 1920s fashion that you could ever desire at Tara Maginnis’ site here. Hope that helps.
