Mrs. Depew Patterns

October 11, 2013

This year for Halloween, I’m hoping to make a 1920s flapper-style dress, preferably something I can wear again.  I’ve been looking around for inexpensive pattern options, and stumbled across Mrs. Depew’s patterns on Etsy.  After doing a search for pattern reviews, I only found reviews for her lingerie, bras, and bathing suits.  Has anyone made one of her dresses?  Was it complicated to do so without a printed pattern?  I would love to read a review if someone has posted one!

Here are the two dresses I am considering:

Option 1:

Option 2 (not exactly flapper, but so pretty!)

Thank you for your help!

  1. I have used her patterns in numerous occasions but only slips and lingerie items. I am a huge fan of them , she is great with communication and would be happy to take any emailed questions you may have. There is also many resources on her blog if you have not already read it. I really love the 1930s evening gown but either one would be fabulous. Good luck!

    1. I would like additional instruction on the bodice for pattern 1124. I’ve drafted patterns before, and my pieces look just like the small version from the download. I’ve cut the pieces in several types of fabric and cannot get the shape to resemble the illustration.
