Stunning dress!
This was my first foray into 1920s fashion, of which I am now a convert! Those straight lines, and drop waists, just so freeing. This dress looked absolutely stunning made up in cream and black and I used cream coloured thread for the top stitching which gave it an extra zing. I used wool crepe and it worked very well. I get many comments when I wear it and will make it in other colour permutations. I think red and cream or maroon and light grey next time.

Gorgeous Art Deco Frock Pattern
I have just completed the second of two Art Deco frocks I have made for a friend using this pattern. We're travelling together to New Zealand for an Art Deco Festival and this dress seemed the absolute perfect choice. I have made one dress in Teal Green-Blue with Chocolate Brown pleats and trimmings and another in Black and Winter-White, pleats and trimmings in black. The black and white dress is very dramatic looking and I'm sure will be the bell of the street festival. The dresses frankly look amazing, even if I do say so myself and are worth the mammoth effort I have put into them. I had to scale the pattern up for my friend and I spent weeks after work fitting her and refitting her. There are a couple of small problems with the pattern. The tie end piece is uneven and I didn't spot that until after I cut out that piece. Also, the cuffs aren't symmetrical. However, the instructions did advise me to check that so it's my fault that I didn't. Other than that I found the pattern easy to follow. I would strongly recommend fitting with a test muslin, basting every seam before sewing and ironing every seam after sewing. It makes the world of difference to the look of the finished garment. My friend is delighted with the results also and we intend to take many photographs on location in downtown Art Deco capital of New Zealand.
