Walmart sells cut-rate cheap fabrics, some of which I used for the flapper dress. To start, I folded the cloth and used a tank top half for a pattern at the fold. It was so easy: What a discovery!
|I used chalk to trace the tank top shape on the fabric fold, then cut. Iced Coffee fueled the project!|
|You can see the neck and the arms as a one-piece.|
|Inserts were added to shape the sides.|
|A good 11" inches or so from the bottom needed to go to achieve my favorite "midi" length.|
|See the shape of the hemline - it worked! Woot!|
|Finally - I can smile in the sunlight again!|
