1920s

I actually sewed something. I've been wanting to make a 1920s dress for a while, and since I needed a new dress for the Downton Abbey Cocktail party, now was the perfect time.  I followed the directions here for a 1928 dance frock.    Alice and Judy helped me fit it, and after a bit more fiddling to make up for the stiffer fabric, I was good to go.  It's made of grey silk taffeta  and silver Jomar trim. I decided to more up the date a bit to better fit the theme of the party.  So I lengthened the skirt to the oh so flattering cankel. For such an unconventional silhouette, it isn't too unflattering.  And I finished the whole thing in two days, new record. :)
