    Also, if you’re dancing, you DON’T want really high heels.

    You are gorgeous! But we need more pictures! Please 🙏!!!

    My first video from Karolína I’ve ever seen. ☺️ thanks to this video I won the best costume in one 1920 party. 😅

    I think you’re trying to say "girdle". That’s shape wear with elastic.

    I suspect that dancing throughout the period when knees were meant to stay hidden but ankles were okay evolved the way it did to get clothes to move in a way to expose the knees and sometimes the thigh. For example, in the 1950s, knees were well hidden—and the response was swing dancing. 😉

    The problem with fashion from a century ago is that video hardly existed yet and photography was a luxury. Many people who loved in that era never had a picture taken of them. And so what images we do have are mostly images of the elite and of celebrities, in full formal attire. We don’t have much to go on with when it comes to everyday looks, even less when it comes to what was worn underneath. For example, what were stockings made of, how were they made, and where did you buy them? So there is no point trying to attempt anything from those times because it would definitely be a reflection of formal and fancy attire.

    Have to remember that many women made their own clothing back then. with hubby lost in the great war there wasn’t a great deal of money around so knocking up a simple dress at home was the only option. the potato sack style was probably a result of not having the skills to make something more fitted. My great grandmother was a professional seamstress, her own attire was always lovely, her daughters though had to endure some strange concoctions. and we have a photograph of my great aunt wearing a potato sack dress in a dark satin with what appears to be a lace trim. her friend wears another cut from a fabric that has a pattern very like the baffle paint jobs warships sported in the second world war. The only jewellery is a modest wristwatch.
    The big thing for women was a good coat. My paternal grandmother inherited a sort of crazed desire for good coats from her mother. Heavy sculpted fabrics and lots of fur trims. A good coat told people you weren’t poor. What was on the outside mattered, you could have knickers full of holes but if you had a good coat you had status. I can remember as a small boy falling asleep in a bear skin coat owned by my mother. that was back in the late 60’s. the coat thing was important. Coats can hide a multitude of sins. Or small boys who aren’t feeling very well. 🙂

    Imagine people 100 years from now arguing how we all dressed using the Kardashians and Gaga as reference lol

  12. The Medicated Artist on February 9, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    I’m obsessed with 1920s fashion, so I felt every ounce of pain

  13. Sam Lester on February 9, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    You are brilliant

  14. Lydia Sellers on February 9, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    Hey do u care if I post this to Instagram? I’m making a flapper guide account and posting the video I based my videos from.

  15. Gengi Spaghetti on February 9, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    modern fashion looks kind of bland in comparison to the past ngl…

  16. Danone on February 9, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    there is something extremely concerning about 1920’s cinema… idk is the high contrast between white face and black hair…. too much for me
    *starts pstd episode*

  17. fairy bug on February 9, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    I literally have 1920s themed party tomorrow. Thx for help

  18. daisydreamgirl on February 9, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    I feel like an expert because I grew up reading cheaper by the dozen and was totally right about how I imagined 1920s fashion:)

  19. Royce on February 9, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    I have never seen a larger woman from the 1920s and I wonder if they felt more or less comfortable with the looser clothing. It’s funny that the 1920s dresses are seen as risque when the dresses seem to be baggier than most other decades

  20. colette cole on February 9, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    result of end of wwl & prohibition / flappers

  21. ang is king on February 9, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    😂 great skit intro

  24. Envied Doll on February 9, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    I- forgot I’m not supposed to dress like most women did in the 1920/s but I’m supposed to dress like a flapper for an interactive project.

  25. Matthew Wierzbowski on February 9, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Wonderfully learning video. Nicely explained

  26. Lydia Sellers on February 9, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    I feel the Gatsby cliche fringe look more so for like women of the night or fancy fancy outting. But I’m just spit balling lol.

    Большое спасибо за русский перевод, очень интересная тема и авторская подача)

  28. Kaye Burfoot on February 9, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    “If you do see a picture of someone intentionally showing their knees, then it was probably an erotic photo and you should be ashamed of yourself.”
    That really got me

  29. Dennis LePorte on February 9, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Girdles, came to be. Also keep in mind that newer better fabrics were coming into age.

  30. Emily Tidwell on February 9, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Her video is 19:20 minutes long 😂

  31. SG F on February 9, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    I think 1920’s baggy cloths were rebeling against the tight, form-fitting earlier fashions.

  32. Débora Ceia on February 9, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    I actually think that "Tempo de amar" did a good job with 20’s fashion.

  33. Carlie Chatfield on February 9, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    I feel like this is an accurate fashion film then, right? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoroughly_Modern_Millie

  34. Lisa Knell on February 9, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I went to a 1920s gala a year ago and bought an antique heavily beaded/sequined tabard dress and all antique accessories. Needless to say, I stuck out in a sea of fringed dresses! It’s ok though, my dress was gorgeous and and I felt beautiful in it.

  35. Jason Zen Tokuda on February 9, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    This remarkable colorized video of Paris from 1926 provides a glimpse of fashion of that era. It’s amazing how everyone is so well-dressed on a casual day at cafes. The women are wearing both small tight hats and larger brimmed hats. Most are wearing looser fitting clothes but some also tighter fitting ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R3VxPz1aE0

  36. Reai Hows on February 9, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Love you!! It was helpful thank u ☹️❤️❤️

  37. Vinemaple on February 9, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    It always bothered me, at British car meets, when people would show up in a car from the 1920s through the 1960s, wearing outfits that were supposed to look like 1890s through 1910s fashion. I never understood that, the authentic period costumes have aged much better, and are more practical.

    Also, an easily available way to see fashion transition from the teens through 1931, is Ken Burns’s "Prohibition" documentary. Don’t worry, it’s only 3 episodes and it’s eminently watchable, unlike earlier, more well known documentaries he’s made… Plenty of film and still photos of people from all walks of life, over two decades.

  38. Caroline Bertaglia Campanhola on February 9, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    I have the 1920 silhouette! Hooray!

  39. Lindsay Wilmarth on February 9, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    I know its not 20s at all. I am well aware. But dammit i wanna look hot this New Year. Historical accuracy be damned for now 😂

  40. Andrea charles on February 9, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    It’s OK to speak about the 1920s from the every day woman’s point of you. What about the night scene of the 1920s? Are they not surprised of the 1920s, what about the taboo dressings of the 1920s? These are all things that people did not speak about. It’s OK to just show that every day housewife. But what about the club scenesAnd the nightlife of the 1920s. Why not talk about that aspect of the 1920s.

  41. kathryn on February 9, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Definitely, but also lots of people cant afford to buy a whole new historically accurate dress + accessories, let alone be able to find them. Sometimes we just have to go with a general vibe from what we have in our wardrobe ! I wish I had an authentic 20s flapper dress but unfortunately I’ll have to settle for an inferior modern garment 😆

  42. Jeffrey Williams on February 9, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    I think the 20s were the birth of the moo moo

  43. Reels for the Real on February 9, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    I am cracking up😂 Meanwhile I have an event in a month and clearly I have it all wrong🍿

  44. LizzyBeth on February 9, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Is it true that waistlines dropped?

  45. Gabriel Hanssens on February 9, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I just recieved a 1920s evening dress from someone whose aunt kept it all these years (and it’s a pain to do researches on it because it’s a f*ing black sequin flapper dress so all i find is stereotypes) and the dress is not too big, not complicated in its cut but its H E A V Y it’s so heavy that i have cramps whenever i lift it up and the completely covered in sequins and beads lightweight cotton is holding up like a sucker but damn she heavy

    btw i just learned that sequins where made of gelatin in the 20s which makes this dress – which’s owner was a heavy smoker and that was stored into a room with a wood stove – completely unwashable

  46. Zuzia Kowalska on February 9, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    what a bout a beaded cap? it’s usually being sold on the internet as 20s headwear but is it accurate?

  47. Meridian Calm on February 9, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Boże, jaki śliczny angielski <3 Filmik ekstra! Pozdro z Krakowa 🙂

  48. Calista Hollowell on February 9, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I wanted to do this sad girl Betty Boop “1920’s flapper” look. Drag makeup, of course. I got on Pinterest and was like, this flapper stuff can’t be right. So I went hunting for real 1920’s fashion… then to find out wth you the makeup I’ve been seeing would even be. I don’t know wth my costume is now but I learned a lot. 😂

  49. ariel lopez on February 9, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    what an estupid begin………..

  50. Kamri McKissick on February 9, 2022 at 11:06 pm
