A final attractive classic ballroom dance gown

From Abby Rhodes


Ken R.:

"From a photo stamped 1925, lovely Mary Belle Wall of Miami Beach made a beautiful picture as the
aptly named 'Crinoline Girl' at a recent costume ball at the Flamingo Gardens. 
A United Newspictures
photo. I noticed the number on top of the caption, 13225. It could stand for the date Feb 13, 1925.
This would make sense since the
NEA ref dept stamp shows March 7, 1925."

The shorter 50s bridal gowns were oft- times more stand-outish than the floor length

Era photos like this were almost always 'adjusted' to show a
very small waist, in order to contrast with a very large skirt. 

Certainly delightful...
