A couple of months ago, I listed these beaded fragments from a 1920s flapper dress in my SewHallie shop on Etsy. Longtime Couture Allure fan, blogger, and home sewer Erin bought them right away.
And baby, look at them now! Erin needed a dress for a creative black tie event at the zoo where she volunteers. She used the dress fragments for the skirt panels and the belt on her flapper style dress she sewed for the party.
You can read more about Erin's dress and how she made it over at Sew Weekly. Erin, thank you for giving new life to these pieces of history. You look fabulous!
