Evening dress and Three piece TuxedoEvening dress
Unknown maker
ca. 1925

This short evening dress shows the typical style of the "flapper," with its boyish and slim silhouette and short hemline. The loose cut allowed the wearer to dance such popular dances as the tango, the Charleston, the shimmy or even the waltz with ease.
