The scent of the 1920´s....

A customer came to the sewing studio with an old tunic, this fabric and the gold fringe.
She wanted a new tunic in this gorgeous fabric witch remined me of my favorite decade: The 20´s.
I made a new pattern of her old tunic, unfortunately I cold not pattern match the fabric as mutch as I wanted beacuse she did not leave that mutch fabric BUT I did my best and made her a new tunic with a touch of the 20´s.
I can imagine a beautiful women stretchting out on a chaise lounge in a bob haircut and smoking a cigarette.

    That is wonderful! How did you attache the fringe to the burnout velvet? I am making something similar and the areas that are burnt out are too delicate for the fringe. I’m afraid it will, over time rip from the weight of the fringe. I may put a satin ribbon/trim on the edges. .

      Thank you Jill!
      I attached Vilene (vliseline in swedish, don´t know if this is the correct english word) on the fabric before I attached the fringe for some stability.

    Akkurat! Den ble veldig stilig, og nettopp veldig 20s chic :)
