Event Announcement: 1920s Dress Workshop

What are you doing this Saturday? I know! You're going to go to this very cool dress workshop in preparation for attending the best speakeasy ever (on Oct 30). Just to be clear, this is a dress workshop about dresses that can be made in one hour, but the workshop itself is longer than that (1-4 pm). And it includes tea! Here are the details:
The Commonwealth Vintage Dancers are pleased to present a costume workshop based on Mary Brooks Picken's 1923 classic The One Hour Dress.

This workshop will give you all the information you need to make your very own authentic 1920's style gown, whether you are a beginning or advanced dressmaker. Just in time for Halloween, and perfect to wear to next month's 1920's themed ball, the Black Cat Speakeasy!

Admission is just $15 per person and includes:
  • A light tea and brief lecture on fashion in the 1920's
  • A live dress making demonstration
  • An opportunity to take all the notes and measurements needed to make your own dress at home
  • Your own copy of the 1923 One Hour Dress booklet, with additional color fashion plates to inspire your creativity
A copy of the booklet alone can cost up to $18 online, making this an unbeatable bargain for a full afternoon of fashion fun at Melrose's beautiful Corinthian Hall.

Where: Corinthian Hall, 253 Franklin St, Melrose, MA, 02176
When: Saturday September 25 from 1-4 PM

To register, go here! And you should, right away!
