K is for kitsch
Sometimes I do blog
I used the One Hour Dress instructions to make a silk flapper dress for one of my dolls, Maisie, who is 42 cm tall for a Pick a Decade sewing challenge on Den of Angels (a bjd forum). Ironically, it took about an hour to make the dress because I had to re-arrange some of the assembly instructions and make a couple guesses about fitting, due to the scale I was working on. The booklet is easy enough to follow that I think anyone with basic sewing skills could make a human sized flapper dress easily enough. I also made the not-a-cloche hat from handmade wool felt I made a while back. I strung her pearl necklace on buttonhole thread.
