Roaring twenties fashion
Wedding Dress: 1924, heavily-beaded silk crepe. "Worn by Mamie Buffenstein on occasion of her marriage to William Nathan...on June 3, 1924 in her parent's home at 1310 S. Lawndale Avenue, Chicago. Bandeau bras and other 'shape reducers' flattened a woman's figure to give her the desirable silhouette of the 1920s. The simple construction of this dress (two straight side seams and two small shoulder seams) is made special with rich glass-bead embroidery."
