Okay, I know the whole 20s/Gatsby thing is getting overdone lately...but I actually dance solo and partnered Charleston, so it's practically required for me to do at least once!  Wink

I am SO proud of how it turned out. A discontinued Simplicity pattern purchased on eBay, about a yard of black swimsuit lining, 13 yards of pitch-black fringe, black tulle, and a few notions later:



I made the dress and gauntlets and put some fringe on elastic for the headband (but just happened to have the lace clip).

I NEVER desire to work with this much fringe again, by the way! Ha. At least not until I have more hours in the day. But I have had several requests to make these for people. Smiley Love how this looks in a sepia filter:



I am NOT a hair person, and I have hair almost to my butt, so I am super proud of how my pin curls turned out:



What makes it only almost-authentic? The 20s gave us what would later become the smoky eye, but I'm not sure they used as much black eye shadow as I actually did. The shoes are a 30s style. And I really don't think they wore chokers. I had make the perfect pearl necklace, but it broke. Sad

Anyway, I wore this to a dance and taught some friends several Charleston moves. We went out there as two flappers, one 20s gangster, and one Taylor Swift, and "Charlestoned" it up! SO fun.

Hey, everyone! Been forever and a day since I've posted, but here's the latest creation:





I am so, so, so proud! I got my pinstripes all perfectly lined up (shoulders, points, and inner front seams), and I think it looks really professional. I really wanted smaller buttons, but I couldn't find any I liked in a smaller size. It's fully lined with some cheap, white satin lining.

This is one of Burda's online patterns, by the way. The Franzi vest, #9302. It's my first experience with a printed pdf pattern, and I have to admit I'm not too impressed. I'm still learning the most efficient way to lay my pattern pieces out on the fabric to cut them, and it didn't come with a mini layout. And while this doesn't have to do so much with the fact that it's printed, the instructions were pretty tough to understand at some points. Luckily, I've been sewing for years, so I was able to figure it out. But had I been really new to sewing, I think I might have given up. Had to figure the shoulder seams out on my own.

At any rate, what I really love about this is that I can wear a racer-back or regular bra with it, and the straps don't show. The whole idea is that this expands my wardrobe, because now I can effectively wear tank tops and camisoles to work. And they'll be none the wiser. Mwahahaha.

Thanks for looking!
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Poor Man's Dress Form... on: April 29, 2014 04:04:55 PM
Oh man. I helped my mom do one of these years ago. I was taping her up and just going to town when all of a sudden she moved and I realized that there was a lot of extra tape in these "bubbles". It turns out that she was slouching the whole time and didn't realize it until we were almost done! So her form turned out... lumpier than we expected, but it was still fun. I think yours turned out a lot better than ours did.

That is an awesome story...I'm sure you shared some laughs!
