Flowing 1930s Dress Completed
I finished my 1931 dress. This is the pattern from Eva Dress
and the finished dress.
It is made of silk chiffon; so pretty and really perfect for this type of dress. The fabric flows and works with the skirt insets. It is constructed with French seams throughout. I sew a lot with silk but have never used silk chiffon. All I can say is it seems to repel pins; all I had to do was look at the fabric and you could hear the pins dropping to the floor. Thank goodness I don’t have carpeting and could readily sweep those pins up!

Now, I just need to make a slip to go beneath the dress
