Flapper dress, 1920s, donated by Janet Scott, 1989.113
This honey-coloured, beaded dress has many of the characteristics of flapper attire. It is sleeveless, knee length, heavily beaded and has a dropped waist. The hem would have flicked up while the wearer was dancing, and she may have powdered or rouged her knees to show them off!
This dress is one of several very high quality flapper-era garments in the museumís collection.
