So planning on making a 'flapper' style dress. Decided on my basic pattern. going to have to add a gore at the sides to make room for my hips. Will be fringing the bottom of the dress as I will need to be able to dance in it plus I suspect it might tickle under the arms. To decorate the top of the dress I'm thinking sequins...just can't decide on the pattern design.
a 'jazz sunburst' at the waist or hipline?
Some straight angles to give a empire line impression?
'V' shape to make more slimming lines?
What do you think? Any ideas? I want to keep it simple an unfussy but use it to best effect to make me not appear to be wearing a sack.
As you have been good I'll give you a little preview of the fabric....
