Lookee what we have here...

That's right, Pink, before you start something NEW finish what you've been working on. Duh.

Okay so I am aware that whilst playing dress up I did forget the long beads. Damn. When I actually wear this out and about, I won't forget them.

So I think this turned out not bad. Since the material was sheer and would look crappy faced, I finished the neckline, armholes and hem with bias tape. I don't know if this is period correct so if you see the 1920s police holla. Oh shit, the chesttoo isn't period correct either!

Actually, I think the bias tape brings out the definition in the handkerchief hem.

What do you think?

I dig it!


  1. i think it's way cute... the bias tape makes the hem flick out a bit

  2. I think it looks good. I would wear it.

  3. OMG! luv it, luv it, luv it!

  4. Pink, this dress is beautiful! I love it, you did a fantastic job!

  5. LOVE it. I say, any time you can use bias tape, DO, lol!
    Chestoo, heheeeee...

    Congrats on adding to you collection of vintage patterns. You're really getting a lot of neat ones. I like the black and red fabric you're getting ready to use.

  6. Good god that is gorgeous!!! Fabulous job! :)
