Sewing Gatsby-Era Clothes

Craft & Design Yarncraft

I am utterly charmed by this set of Gatsby-inspired dresses sewn by Nested for the Gatsby Summer Afternoon event in Oakland, California. The story of how and why she has sewn this small collection of dresses is inspiring in its ambition and dedication to a long-held dream of attending the Gatsby Summer Afternoon event. I love reading about how she found an appropriate pattern, picked fabrics and added special embellishments for each dress (that she was able to create for around $30 each!) Read more about the dresses and the event over on the Nested blog.
