This dress started in the same way that many of my sewing projects have started…with a picture. A simple, little picture of a dress. This particular picture was tossed among waves of other dresses, yet it popped right out of the page and straight into my imagination.
You see, I have a hard time with 1920’s dresses. Not because they aren’t cute, or because they aren’t stylish in their own way…but because then have little to no waistline. And being a girl with a body shape that emphasizes finding said waist, this style goes against the grain. Nonetheless, the little image of an early 1920’s dress just wiggled it’s way right into my heart, and I knew I had to make one of my own.
Created out of a soft yellow cotton with a brown check, this easy-to-create dress is made unique with the three panels that hang down just below the hem. As always, I have included the pattern as well as the list of materials needed.
- 5 yards cotton for dress
- 1/2 yard cotton for revers and belt/band.
