I made this fun flapper dress for a 1920’s themed birthday party that I was invited to. I used Simplicity 1776 pattern as the base dress and sewed on nearly 8 yards of fringe trim all around the dress in rows. The dress itself was easy to make, and only took few evenings after work to make, but the fringe is a pain to sew on evenly as it is very slippery, heavy and gets in the way. I powered through it though with the help of my dress form and lots of pins! I also made the sequin and feather headband to match.
Overall, it was a fun costume dress to sew and to wear as I LOVE fashion history and also LOVE getting all dressed up! It is so great to be able to sew and design apparel and accessories, don’t you agree?
