1920 Antique Silk Rayon Ribbon Rosette Dress Trim Yardage Crafts DIY Sewing
The 1920’s saw an outstanding presentation of the beautiful ribbon rosette trim. This glorious type of trim in solids as well as color combinations was used extensively and not sparingly, in a lady’s boudoir from small dresser items such as powder puffs, back of mirrors and dresser trays, just to name a few, to pillows, chaise covers and lampshades.
Even many pieces of her clothing, especially underclothing (now becoming known as lingerie) exhibited beautiful rosettes and rosette trims.
The lovely piece is a delicate shade of blue “flowers with green leaves”.
