Thoughts on 1923 Fashions -- From 1923



From The Gentlewoman, September, 1923; by Ethel Boston:
However, there is nothing that can entirely make or mar a frock as completely as this trimming. The selection of details, therefore, requires particularly close and thoughtful study. The trend toward Chinese embroidery opens up unlimited possibilities for one to create embroidery designs of infinite cniirm and color. Embroidery has ever been a most effective trimming, and the craze for period embroidery has been very pronounced during the past season. First it was peasant embroidery, then Egyptian, and now Chinese. But each new mode gives the creators a splendid opportunity to combine the most daring colors and unusual patterns.
