Early 1920s Gatsby Garden Party Dress- Help!

Part of me knows what I want, and yet part of me SO doesn't! Even though I'm certainly not unacquainted with the era, and I do adore their fashion, I haven't seen any extant dresses or patterns that have really popped out at me. You know, the dress where you just see it and all your papers and your sketchbook and pencils drop from your desk and the world seems to narrow down to you and the dress and hey look you realize you're drooling and the only thought in your head is YOU ARE MINE!

That kind of dress. :D

It's early '20s, so preferably '20-'24-ish. I have this great hat I picked up in Montepulciano in Tuscany that I simply MUST wear with it, and since the hat has orangey/rusty coloured flowers on it, I'm thinking maybe a white sheer with a bit of rustish-themed floral to it... I just need links or pics to do with summer day dresses, don't worry about the colour or anything.

Say Hello To My Little Friend!

Just shipped. PSYCHED! Made of wood and brass, rotary dial and original internal ringer box for that awesome vintage ring!  XD I shall be taking MANY pictures with this, from the 1910s to the '40s (even though it seems a wee bit early for the '40s, the Bailey's phone in 'It's A Wonderful Life (1946) was a candlestick. I was pleasantly surprised to notice this!)

Vintage Shopping WIN.

The last one I really love- I think might be the best picture I've ever taken of me ahaha!  I REALLY wanna dress in period dress to the airport, but we'll see if I get my dress done in time...
