1927

The Flapper Girl

One thing I did read about this flapper fashion, was that the short above the knee hemline styles were only worn by some women, not the average woman. Like I said before, that info may not be correct. I am getting a little glimpse into what it must be like to write a book. Or at least one where all of your information has to be researched very thoroughly. Wow...all this from taking a picture of my thimbles.

Were they the hussies-running around and teasing the men with their shapely knees? I think Rosemary has written about them, or at least, some women like them.

I think my grand mother dressed like that in the twenties! I have a photo of her and my great grand mother and I do remember those "hats" Love what you're doing with the thimbles!

I didn't realize you had more up, thought it was the post from the other day. I love the images you are choosing to go along with your dolls, some beautiful pencil drawings. I'm enjoying this and now I'll be more aware that there is a new post on the subject..

This is lovely, it reminds me of the film Thoroughly Modern Millie. I loved their clothes.
