Pattern Description:

I think I should have been born around the turn of the century so I could have taken full advantage of the fabulous styles of the 20s, 30s and 40s. This dress is something I've been wanting to make for a while now, a flapper style dress with luscious lace, light and cool for summer, utterly customizable, I wear it over a black tank top and black knee length leggings. Its meant to fit loosely, in the true flapper style, so should have plenty of positive ease. This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners/intermediates. There is no increasing/decreasing, no shaping whatsoever! Also, this pattern doesn't take forever to finish, thanks to the openwork. I used Frog Tree Pima Cotton Yarn, in the gold/camel colored shade.
