Flapper dress on it’s way

I’ve been working on the slip and also on reattaching several pearls on the top that were coming off. I’m really excited about the way it looks. Have spent quite a bit of time on deciding what the skirt will be like, but think it will be a swirly model with some pleats.


Also- As I was working with the green shiny fabric it occurred to me that it didn’t seem to be the polyester I thought it was, so I burned a little and it actually seems to be silk. A bargain, since I bought it at goodwill.
