So I've been pondering Flappers and fashion. And I"m trying to figure out how women went from this kind of clothing... completely covered up and corseted...
Dress 1872 = about 80 pounds of clothing.
To this... in the span of about ten years.... or less.
Dancing the Charleston, driving cars, going out in public unescorted, voting, birth control, going to college. What happened?
Just pondering my grandmother's generation.
