Three dresses for my Flapper Series, with F. Scott Fitzgerald short stories and novels. Note: the older short stories have a yellowed patina due to the age of the book.
This one, a shorty, is experimenting with fringe and feather and silver bling.
This one, I just love. It's a sleeved dress with pearls and feathers from an unmarred page in a heavily marked up copy of The Great Gatsby, which I saved from the thrift bin. It is a beautiful book and deserves a beautiful tribute.
This one is from the post below.
These dresses and more like them will be for sale at Beyond The Sea in Lincolnville Beach. Custom dresses can be made and shipped throughout the U.S.: please contact me. All concepts, designs and photos are © Kay Stephens
I'm creating a new Flapper miniature dress series based on short stories from the 1920s. This one is made from my favorite author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his short story Bernice Bobs Her Hair.
I like making these literary one-of-a-kind miniature art pieces to "Make America Read Again." Here is the original short story when it was first published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1920.
Each one comes with its own custom hanger. I'm going to be selling these through Beyond The Sea bookstore in Lincolnville, but if you have a store you'd like to consign these mini literary and fairy dresses through this summer contact me.
Oh April, we know you're supposed to rain down showers to bring May flowers, but did you have to rain all damned month? So dreary. This little dress will get you thinking of beautiful spring days and lazy days on the beach reading fluffy bodice rippers. This dress is made from one and adorned with faux pearls and petal skirt.
The back of the bodice is done up in pretty, pink lace. Update: this dress was sold within 24 hours of posting it online. I can custom make these for bridal showers, wedding presents and special birthday gifts. ($35) Contact me.
This is how the dress is supposed to make you feel.
