Astoria, New Yor...
I was attempting to make a 1920s dress for a jazz festival in town, but the problem with the 1920s and me is that I have a much smaller top than I do bottom so dropped waists don’t flatter me. I drafted my own pattern that was 1920s-esque with fitted waist and then a fitted dropped waist band and then sewed it up in jersey so I’d be incredible comfortable. More details here.
