I was wondering if anybody has made this dress, or know of someone who has made it (and has photos online…) : http://www.tudorlinks.com/treasury/articles/1912frocksxmas.html#EveningDress ?
I’d love to see it in a photo. I’d like to make it, but I am having a hard time reading the text on the diagram. I can read the words “drapery” and “lining” and “material” but can’t see any of the words on the edges. I’m not sure if its my computer or what.
Or, if anybody has a link to other online 1912 draped evening dresses resources? I’m in Benin so I prefer pdf patterns as the mail is very slow here/tendency to become lost.
