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. 


  1. Okay so I don't quite know what you're looking for but this site has tons of 20s patterns. I've bought three from them and I love them.

    There are many pages of 20s so go beyond the 1st page.

    I hope this helps!

  2. Aaaah yes! Thank you so much! I found THE dress! :D
