The dress was made using patterns from Gertie’s books, altered to suit the design I had in mind. The bolero I made using a free pattern found online. I sewed the whole thing on my vintage singer 201P, using vintage techniques such as bias-bound edges and a waist-stay.
It came out even better than I’d hoped, the perfect outfit for a wonderful night! You can read more about the design process and construction, and see more photos here on my blog 🙂
Until next time,
