The roaring, wild twenties.
The beginning of jazz.
Women started taking a stand for more equal rights.
And women abandoned their restrictive clothes and shortened their skirts.
I’m involved in a high school project – The Roaring Twenties. Fanny the Flapper needs a costume that reflects the era. This is a challenge for my teen-age friend. Could I? Would I? Help?
Pining and pattern planning. I’ve found the fabric – now to make the pattern. This is fun.
It’s a tiny dress form but the process for making a dress is exactly the same; facings cut on the bias, pleated skirt and perfectly trimmed edgings.
The dress is finished. It was part of a bigger project. Oh yes – the project got an A mark.
