I had this scrap of fancy fabric, and I wanted to make a basic 1920s dress that would be fancy from the fabric used, not from the pattern.
I used some of the pattern pieces from the Keepers Dolly Duds Nautical Pleats pattern for the bodice and sleeves, and for the length of the dress.
I made my own Peter Pan collar pattern to go with it.
I added a black velvet Peter Pan collar and sleeve cuffs.
I am happy with it. I feel like it's something a girl could reasonably wear to a jazz concert with her parents in the 1920s.
Both Phryne Valancy and Claudie got to try it on.
Who do you think looks better in it?
