1920s Dress for the Great Gatsby Challenge!

June 3, 2013

For the Great Gatsby challenge, I made a draped dress from a 1924 publication. The instructions were surprisingly easy, though it was challenging not having enough of my gorgeous silk chicken fabric.

I also decided to also make a hat and a brooch to tie the whole look together. The hat is from Simplicity 1736, view E.

More photos are over on my blog!

  1. I thought it was a typo and you meant to say silk Chiffon. But then I looked and of course there are chickens! how wonderful! wherever did you find that? And you looking every part the flapper btw! great work

  2. Thanks, everyone! I found the chicken fabric at my local fabric store in Queens – and they were almost out so I grabbed the last 1.25 yards to make this.

    I actually tried looking online for some more fabric to make a bigger dress, sleeves, etc, but I had no luck. I’ll post if I run across any more!

  3. ‘m 05.01.2008 bekam mein kleiner Luca morgens Fieber, da emergeny room eine Nimamaenbeckenwirweitung hatte meinte meine s lieb noch einmal zum KiArzt fahren sollten um ihn durch checken zu lassen und um uns Fiebz盲pfchen vschreiben zu lassen.
