Scintillating - An amalgamation of past and present
I cut the bodice of this gown from contemporary Vogue pattern 8191 and the skirt from a vintage 1930's evening gown pattern.
I sewed the gown on my 1941 Singer 201-2 and narrowly hemmed with my circa 1889 hemming foot-my FAVORITE attachment!
Pattern or design used: My own design - 1935 Evening Gown Pattern
