A glamorous Party in a vintage style dress

Hi lovely people at wesewretro,
this is my first post on this amazing site and I would like to introduce my latest make to you. It´s a babypink satin dress in the style of the roaring twenties here in Berlin. As a vintage lover I wanted to attend a party dedicated to this era and just had to make my own dress for this special occasion!

I found a pattern in an older Burda Style, December 2011, dress number 126. It was not perfect but good enough for my purpose. So I made a few adjustments, like taking in the side seems a little (I like to show a little waist!) and eliminated the velvet panel in the middle…. the hardest part was adding the thousands (or so it seemed) beadstrings that I had in my mind to posh up my look… turned out fabulous if you don´t mind me boasting ;-)

You can have a look of the completed dress and if you´re interested in more detail, pop over to my blog.


Thanks for your interest.
