Flapper Dress with Gloves Sewing Pattern: Lined, Bust Darts, Sleeveless

This lovely top  lined women’s flapper dress sewing pattern is available only in our paid pattern library.  For more on how to purchase our 125+ sewing patterns for a one time $67.  We offer something for everyone in our pattern database.  See the Offer Here. 

We love this flapper dress because it is a lined quality piece which can be made with a crepe fabric for a well constructed wardrobe piece, OR  the base dress can easily be changed to make the flapper dress costume.  Lengthen or shorten the hem line or lengthen or shorten the flanges.  

Advanced sewists could add beading to the bodice in all kinds of different designs and bead types.  Check out Pinterest for ideas on designs.

This pattern also comes with a basic flapper glove pattern and instructions.  Again, make the gloves as simple or dressy as you like, but by changing the fabric.  

Flapper Dress Costume: Advanced Sewing Pattern

This dress pattern is a bit more difficult for the Intermediate sewist because of the lining and the bust dart that may need to be adjusted.

If you use this simply as a costume, you may not have to be too picky about the dart and where they hit.  

The lining is constructed by using the burrito roll method, which we have used on many of our sleeveless dress patterns.  We have detailed written instructions as well as a video demonstration on how to do the burrito roll.

Hi! My name is Molly McGuire, and my number one passion is sewing. In fact, I've dedicated my entire life to it. When I was a little girl, I used to love watching my grandma work on her sewing machine. She could make anything. She made all the clothes for the entire family, and it was so amazing! Today, I continue my grandma's legacy by making clothes for our extended family and teaching proper sewing techniques to our students. I get a great deal of satisfaction from teaching others. Once again, thank you for visiting my blog and please feel free to reach out to me! I would love to hear from you! Enjoy! Molly
