I recently got to pattern test the new Gatsby dress pattern from Heidi&Finn. It’s such an easy, fun sew! I read every post at WeSewRetro, but I rarely get to contribute. I’m sort of sneaking this one in, since it’s a modern pattern and modern fabrics! But there’s a distinctly vintage flavor to this dress that I love.
This is a child’s pattern, and I made the biggest size for Isabelle, 10/12. The fabric is crushed panne & stretch lace. That alone is pretty much a sin against vintage sewing, but I had to keep it kid friendly or it wouldn’t get worn!
I love the Grecian style fashions that were so popular in the roaring 20s! If you’d like to stop by SewsNBows to see more photos, I’d love a visit!
