Gatsby Era Dress

in 1930s

This past weekend, I attended the Art Deco Society of California’s Gatsby picnic.  I made up a 1930′s style dress for the event, using Butterick 5417.

It was my first time working with chiffon, but it wasn’t as terrifying as I thought it would be.  Everything came together in the end, but it was a bit of a process to get there.  More details and pictures from the event on my blog: What’s Up, Cupcake? Blog
