Hi all, after a 7-8 year hiatus from Crafster, I thought I'd come back and share some of the things I make.

I had a 1920s themed event to attend and I didn't want to hire/purchase a costume, so I attempted to make a drop waisted dress from some blue lace fabric. I am a complete novice sewer so whilst it is far from perfect, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you guys like it  Smiley

Edit: I just posted about how I made the dress on my blog: http://the--novemberist.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/three-how-to-make-1920s-inspired-dress.html

thanks so much for your comments! i think the shoes were quite 20s in their appearance except for the stiletto heel (but i don't think anyone would care too much about that)

Oh wow. Extremely good job for a novice!!! Great job. Must have been hard sewing lace fabric. Wonderful period outfit. Thanks for sharing.
