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.

    Dolin went to this a years ago and sewed her own dress. It’s a beautiful event done by the Art Deco society.

    When we use word beauty or beautiful, it clearly indicates our inclination towards something or object which we like the most. Nature is most beautiful object we have in which we exist in general. The word beautiful is a feminine word. When we listen the word beauty or beautiful, we assume a pretty, cool, charming and good-looking face. Boys or men dont need to be beautiful rather they need to be handsome.

    My wife is interested in sewing this era of clothing for this year’s halloween. Do you think is too daunting of a task to complete in a month and a half?
