Beautiful, satin stitched embroidered netting on silk satin crepe 1920's day dress with the matching vest both edged in Reticella needle lace. This elegant pairing is made from a pale yellow mercerized cotton floss, masterfully hand-embroidered with a large, padded 3-D motif of Japanese Iris' and chrysanthemums with elegant leaves, delicate daisies, groups of tiny knots and dangling scrolled cutouts with crossbars.
THREE DAY DRESSES, 1920’s. One long sleeve ecru crepe with blue and rust Deco print with cherries. One short sleeve cotton voile with navy, red and cream geometric print having ruffled cap sleeve and red trim. One navy crepe with 3/4 sleeve, navy floral embroidery and pleated skirt panels.
I want the magicians assistant to have a look to her. I also want her costume to work well with Maskelyne's. I image them being in clothing to give a sense of 'show' or 'fanciness'/ 'stagepresence'. I don't really know how to explain this.
