I know it looks crazy, but I love this 1920's dress

From the seller:

A Deco Darling in the style of the famed french house Boue Soeurs! Pristine fresh color and the most amazing lace I've ever seen combine to create a ball gown from between the wars. This french flapper style has a classic drop waist and pannier detail are hallmark of the era. A pink silk velvetine top is accented with a lime yellow accent at the drop waist/hip line. Hand stitched detail and weighted inside show the thoughtfulness of the dressmaker. The asymetrical skirt is truly a confection- the inner layer is a silk taffeta of bronze hemmed in gold lace. This is topped by layers of tule in accent colors- pink, teal and yellow. This all supports the real drama- the black netting with peacock motif lace. Further detail is the panniers of wire covered in delicate ribbon flowers and leaves. Topping off this confection is a cluster of pastel pink and yellow flowers at the neckline. This piece is nearly 100 years old but looks completely fresh. The only sign of wear is some crushing at the armpit- clearly she danced the night away! The fit is sleek and made of a size 0/2 or lean 4. The bust measures 32 1/2 inches- the hips measures 35. A very inspirational piece ready for a run down the red carpet.

From Me:

....I think I need to make one like this....
