This black pinafore dating from the 1920s embodies perfectly the classic dropped waist of the era. During the 1920s, fashion responded to World War I with a sense of euphoria. No longer were dresses fitted to a corset. Simplicity was key. Simple dresses, shaped using only a few design details reflected this new freedom. The looseness and shape of this easy to wear pinafore is very appealing - just throw it on and go.

It has a long, lean line - featuring a small black sash that gives the dress just the right amount of shape. Small black buttons are placed perfectly, giving this dress a tinge of flapper playfulness. The deco strips of velvet are also a favorite. You can pair it with any silk blouses for a day and an evening look. This dress is as stylish today as it was when first worn.
