Description

We had a summer party at work and the theme was 1920s. I am no big fan of this time, but after I saw “Easy Virtue” at least I had an idea. I bought a repro pattern from 1929. For the color green was the only choice like the great dress in “Atonement”.

Sewing was a bit complicated, but all in all I am satisfied with the outcome.
