Beautiful photograph by Clifford Adams – Two Flappers – National Geographic. For the first time in history it was smart for a girl to be practical – and to wear clothes that demanded less care. Women’s magazines were filled with patterns based on the ‘new Paris styles’ and if a girl could sew, all she needed was the proper material and a large table, on which to lay out her new future dress. Lady Mary was recently spotted browsing Vogue! No cheap sewing patterns for her!
