This is an E-book with instructions on how to drape and sew a 1920's evening dress WITHOUT USING A PAPER PATTERN! The instructions are quite easy and will make sense to an intermediate or above sewing enthusiast. Instructions include how to make the dress to your exact measurements.

The dress from 1927 requires a simple straight-line slip as the base to drape the dress on. I have included free easy slip making instructions to go along with this (see 2nd photo). Fabric allowances for the slip are not included. (Depending on your figure, about 1 1/2 yds 40" or wider fabric should do the trick.)

SIZING: Since this pattern is draped, it can be made for a figure of any size!

Also included free with this pattern: "Draping Tips and Tricks" and "Appropriate Seams and Finishes" lessons that should come in quite handy in the dressmaking process!

Don't have a printer? A paper version of this pattern is also available here:

For an evening cape pattern from the same era, see this pattern:

You will be able to sew a complete dress using this E-booklet, no printing required!

The flapper draped dress is slimming and very flattering. They make the most comfortable slips and nightgowns sewn from soft jersey or silk.

Fabric requirements:
Please see the 3rd photo.
