Perhaps I’ve seen one too many Merchant Ivory films, but I think I could practically live in a loose-fitting, drop-waisted lacy dress like this all summer.
1920s fashions make such wonderful inspiration because the style lines are incredibly simple and the details so rich. Take any shift or drop waist dress pattern (might I suggest Laurel?), make it in a light silk or cotton, add pleats and lace insertions. Add a straw hat and bright lipstick. Done!
