I really like this, it shows that you put a lot of work into it Smiley And I always love colour combinations like this. I'm just learning how to sew, I hope one day I'll become good enough to pull anything off that looks as great as this.

That is stunning!  Shocked I love, love, love the jacket. It looks so authentic to the time, I can tell you put a lot of research into it. Just curious, what kinds of topics did you research that helped contribute to the design? Social issues of the 20s, or rather something design specific? I'm a 20s nut  Smiley

I researched as much as I could to do with fashion and lifestyle of the 20s... so flappers of course..! lol, designers such as chanel (LBD) vionnet (late 20s and bias cut) schiapharelli (sp?.. colour etc.. only some 20s..) illustrators, erte and georges lepape, erm, then companies like A.L. Tirocchi (if you've never heard of these sisters, then take a look at this website, it's fab: http://tirocchi.stg.brown.edu/intro.html I also looked into artists and fabric designers.. ie raoul dufy, Bianchini Ferier... then there was the modern day silhouettes, comparing them with 20s clothing... art deco, how jackets were fastened... ie to the side Smiley lol. so so SO much more, but I dont have my book with me... so I can't really have a look!!!

The garments were supposed to be daywear... but I couldnt resist looking into the flapper evening stuff... it's AMAZING! lol so I kind of named my design.. 'exquisite daywear!!' lol.

The coat is like... mink (is that what it's called? stripe fur stuff, lovely lovely mmm I just HAD to buy it Cheesy I'd never made a coat before.. no hoods, no sleeves.. I am proud Cheesy lol.

Thanks for the reply, loukr! That's a lot of research--I appreciate that as much as the garment itself. Awesome job.

FINALLY, I got hold of the tutorial I wrote for my project.. I'm only going to put the tute up for the dress, because the coat one doesn't really make any sense whatsoever... so here you are Cheesy




If anything's unclear or you don't get it then just ask. And please let me see what you make if anyone does make it or use it for something similar, I wouldn't normally ask, but as it was my design and I spent days on end making the pattern and figuring out how it'd work I think it's the least to ask  Grin.

DON'T FORGET TO ADD SEAM ALLOWANCE

TOPBAND:
the top band measured 2inches height, so doubled over 4 inches, and obviously allow seam allowance. Also, note that this is probably the most crucial (sp?! lol) part of the dress, as is holds everything up... if this is too loose my friends, then you will have much humilliation upon wearing it! measure the circumference of your body, right under your arm pits. Minus 1.5 -2.5 inches from this measurement, then half the final number. this will be the width of your 'topband.

BODICE PART:

This part was made from non-stretchy fabric, so this has to be made wide enough to fit over your body. measure around the fullest part of your chest, and add 0.5-1 inch ontop of this. again, half the final measure and this will be the width for the bodice part. for the length, measure from right under the armpit, wo where you want your waistband to start, and minus the 2 inches that will be your topband. Next, decide how much you want it to hang over the waistband. I didn't want it hanging too much, so I added on about 2 or 3 inches. Once you have the dress made up you can move the waistband to whatever height you like, so this length can differ anyway.

WAISTBAND:
The waistband is made out of the stretchy fabric. as with the topband, measure around where you want the waistband (mine was quite low on the hip.. 1920s stylee), and minus that 1.5-2.5 inches. AGAIN... half the measurement you get at the end of this, and this will be the width of your waistband. the height can vary however you like, mine was 3 or 4 inches... don't know the exact measurement..!

*****remember to cut 2 of EVERYTHING (apart from the skirt!!) because the front and back are the same measurements!*****

SKIRT:
The skirt is just a simple circle skirt square thingy... basically, mine measured 1m X 1m, and the circle was my hip measurement, but minus about 2 inches, because half of the skirt will be on the bias, it stretches (think that's right) but well anyway, you need to cut it a bit smaller than your actual measurement.

Now follow the really realy rubbish tutorial, and you should end up with something similar to mine...!

Hope this is useful!!
