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.

Helen Whitehill (1), Indianapolis, Indiana. Mrs. Eldon Alig, Indianapolis, Indiana; given to Indianapolis Museum of Art 25 July 1973.

(1) Helen Whitehill wore this dress at her wedding to Albert K. Scheidenhelm (21 September 1923)
