I made this dress for Miss Crayola Creepy’s Great Gatsby Challenge. I was inspired by the 20’s but didn’t make an authentic dress, instead I took elements I like from ’20’s dresses and made a dress I would like to wear – it has a dropped waist, a low back, pleats and beading! I altered the ’20’s look though and made it more fitted and a little shorter so it’s more wearable for me. I love it!
I designed this myself using my block and I am thrilled with the way it turned out, It all lined up perfectly and I’m pretty pleased with the fit.
