hey, I might actually have a reason to wear this dress now. In school we have to do a project about what time era we would like to live in and why. We also have to make some sort of product. I was thinking of doing 1920's (that is the proper era for the dress, right?) and making this dress. What do you think?

I think you could swing it. What a great show-and-tell item!

I got my mom to make this for a school dance a couple of years ago, but I think yours looks much better than mine turned out.  Let's just say don't go for black lace on a black underdress with the long sleeves, looked much too funeral-like.  I might shorten the sleeves if I ever want to wear it again, and make a lighter color underdress.

Great job again!

Wow, it worked ! Anyway, I used an invisble zipper instead of a regular one.  I didn't have scalloped lace, so I bought extra, cut out the flowers, and handsewed them to the edges of the neckline, armholes and skirt hem.  I'm sorry you can't see the detail, but I was in need of a little black dress, that i didn't do another color.  I'm so pleased at the result that i want to make another one out of regular fabric instead.

That looks great! Hey, I was wondering, what's an invisible zipper? It sounds intriguing. I'm not very experienced with sewing so I don't know a lot of these things.

an invisible zipper is just a thin zipper that's usually plastic and the pull is painted to match.

They're not the big huge clunky zippers that are on jeans normally, but the smaller thinner ones that you see on skirts and nice dresses.

They're pretty common, honestly.

Ah cool. Thanks for telling me. I just didn't know the name for them. I feel stupid.
