Make a 1920’s Dress in under 1 Hour!

June 7th, 2010 § 0 comments

For all you aspiring dress makers and vintage clothes lovers…how would you like to make a 1920’s inspired dress in under 1 hour!?

I have always wanted to make clothes, but with no Textiles course at my school, and Mum’s sewing machine always looking a little TOO complicated for me, I never really got further than a few cross stitches!

But after picking up a sewing machine from a Cheltenham Car Boot sale for £5 I really had no excuse not to get stuck in! I even found some vintage hook and eyes, buttons and zips to add to my collection!

After using lots of patterns and several failed attempts I stumbled across a site that was selling the dressmaker; Mary Brook’s original 1923 pamphlet which helped women to make a 1920’s flapper dress in under 1 hour! How cool is that!

You can order the pamphlet here!

Good luck and be sure to upload your pictures of your finished dress!
