Sew the decades - 20s

Sharing an older project that I completed as part of a “sew the decades” local sewing group. We started with the 20s, which seems appropriate to share today on the first day of the 20s. :wink:

I made the dress, cape, and hat.

Happy New Year!

What a fabulous way to honor the past and yet have things to wear today! You look terrific in that outfit! The hat is just adorable. Even your make-up matches the period!

Probably my favorite part of the whole making clothing from the past was looking for appropriate shoes. :heart:

Aww!! Thanks everyone. It was a lot of fun and one of the rare times I actually made something for myself.

I really appreciate the subtle texture on the hat. and the shoes ARE bangin!

The 20’s were really nice when it comes to fashion, and while I can’t see the dress that well what I do see looks amazing, and the hat is so damn cute, and of course, who doesn’t need a huge cape? I think it’s a great project.
