Cyd Charisse/1920's Flapper Dress
Halloween 2009

It's simple, but very tedious. Especially sewing all the panels onto the dress and measuring the edge of the bustline and the hem so they hit where a typical 1920's dress would hit.

I got the idea from the green dress Cyd Charisse wore in the movie "Singin' in the Rain." It's one of my favorite movies of all time, and I couldn't take my eyes off that Charisse's green dress.

I think it looks kind of amateurish, but it was my first big project. I've only ever done fix-its and touch-ups.
