The roaring, wild twenties.

The beginning of jazz.

Women started taking a stand for more equal rights.

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.
