1924 Monte Carlo Dress Sewing Pattern
1924 Monte Carlo Dress Sewing Pattern by Folkwear
A popular 1920's fashion among the young, adventurous "flapper" girls was the straight-sided drop-waist dress with handkerchief hem, worn with tunic tops made out of revealingly sheer fabrics. It was daring to attract attention to the youthful, healthy body underneath the clothes, instead of concealing it with the conservative garments of earlier years.Our Monte Carlo Dress, from 1924, is inspired by the captivating styles of Paul Poiret and Jacques Doucet. The sheath dress features the drop waist and cylindrical silhouette so popular at the time. It is finished off with a bias-cut handkerchief hem that swishes seductively around nylon-stockinged legs and shows off a bit of ankle. Fanciful decoration was all the rage, in beads, sumptuous embroidery, and bejeweled ornaments. Embellish the dress according to the occasion, using the vintage design motifs included in the pattern.
Two simple-sew tunics can be embellished with tassels or sparkling baubles and worn in different arrangements over the dress: facing front or back, belted all around, or belted just in the front. They also create opportunities for interesting layering of sheer or shimmering fabrics.
Multi-sized pattern includes bust sizes 30.5-46, waist sizes 23-39 and hip sizes 32.5-48 all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
