Why did flappers Rouge their knees? – 1920’S Vintage Flapper Dresses Plus Size

I was in NYC with an amazing artist that was doing this for fun (because there is nothing like a good story about a flapper doing something fun for a living).

After the conversation ended, we discussed the various forms of flaps we were seeing with people. They said a couple of things that were incredibly helpful, and I think we will see something similar for our upcoming book.

1) We tend to use flaps to cover up a raised crotch, which may be the case with many flappers. But there are a few other things that can look a bit more open-backed with flaps.

The work I do is mostly for my own personal enjoyment. If something gets popular or popular ideas come into my head, it probably ends up in here.

In the early days however, it was an intense focus on the work itself as I’d just become a mother and the project grew and grew. This was during a period at Disney specifically where I was working in production. Because the focus and the focus of the project grew to the point where someone, someone close to me at Disney started asking me “What are you doing?” And then I decided that it was worth keeping up on.

At this point the site began to go back to Disney-centric and some people began suggesting some “more mainstream” content. Things like clothing or
