Not ivory or white, but a classic empire maxi with delicate cotton lace details just below the bust. The single long pleat in the front is simple and elegant. Chesty women like me would have to have more material up top, but it's a pretty understated style.
1920′s Silhouette: The key was feminine grace, but without curves. This loose clothing fad only lasted a short while & eventually was replaced by more austere lines in the more grim days of the 1930′s. A slender & flat chested silhouette was the objective for women, & large busts could be flattened with the help of early bras like the infamous Symington Side Lacer.
