As most of you already know, one of the greatest satisfactions of sewing your own clothes is having a fabulous occasion for which to wear them! Such an occasion was this past New Year’s Eve, when Wild Kat hosted a glittering Prohibition Party. We even convinced our men to dress the part!
Wild Kat opted for a flapper-styled sack dress made from an original 1920s Standard New Idea pattern. She used a cream satin trimmed with embossed black velvet. For more photos and details, please see the Hometown Victory Girls blog.
I stepped away from my typical, full-skirted dress and created a classic 1930s-style. Using Vogue 1371 and a slubbed satin in peacock blue, I was quite happy with the results. More photos and dress details can be found at the Willow Homestead blog.
