This fringed & beaded flapper dress is flirtatious & free-flowing, in the style of the Chicago flapper years.   Named in honour of Zelda Fitzgerald - a gregarious party girl who became notorious for her wild antics!  The wife of American novellist, F. Scott Fitzgerald & a writer in her own right,  Zelda was an icon of the 1920s, dubbed by her husband, "the first American flapper".

  • Beaded Dress

Each dress has been produced by the same company that made the gorgeous beaded dresses as seen in the award winning film, "The Artist".  They take between 70 - 90 hours each to bead & we at Fancy That! Costumes have purchased supplies of enough beads to re-bead each dress in it's entirety, to ensure they are scrupulously maintained to the quality standard you would expect for the price. Furthermore, we stock no two the same in our wardrobe. You can purchase this dress & matching bandeau alone from the lovely Linda de Clario of Vintage Now Clothing in Rosebud, Victoria, for just under $350.  OR congratulate yourself on how savvy you are by saving hundreds of dollars by hiring the fully accessorised look from us (that's more money to spend on the champagne!) A note on sizing:

  • The slip is cut on the bias & beading is sewn into stretch mesh.  Your body shape is the ultimate determinant however it should fit sizes 8 through to 12
  • "Small" - Indicative measurements here:
    • Bust:    32 - 36"
    • Waist:  28 - 32"
    • Hips:    34 - 40"

A note on styling:

  • Reversable, for either plunging V-shaped or more modest round neckline (see pic gallery)
  • We recommend keeping jewellery to a minimum on these deluxe beaded dresses - they are jewelled enough in themelves!  A bare neckline & some pretty, drop diamonte or pearl earrings are generally best.
  • Similarly, avoid fishnet stockings - opt for bare legs or a simple nude backseam.
  • Shoes should be closed toe, low heel, with a t-bar or Alice band ankle strap - perfect for Charlseton-dancing the night away!
