Pattern Tour E30-2102, 1930 Dinner Gown

A frock with a little of everything from its uneven hem full of godets to beaded straps!  I designed this pattern based on the color rendering originally sketched by a pattern company artist at a runway show in 1930.  The caption written on the original reads:'Dinner Gown of shaded pale green tulle, combined with lace, edged with pearls.  Chic Model, N.Y. Hollywood’.
