Draped Flapper Gown


This is an E-book with instructions on how to sew a 1920's draped 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 easy slip making instructions to go along with this. Fabric allowances for the slip are not included.


Instructions are given for the evening cape as well but they are vague and will make more sense to an experienced seamstress than a beginner.

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.
