This delightful "flapper" dress was worn at the Indianapolis wedding of Helen Whitehill and Albert K. Scheidenhelm, September 21, 1923. It is a perfect example of the very stylish young lady of the time with its short shapeless torso slit to reveal the decorated under slip. The shoes and stockings were part of the ensemble.
