Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republication™ of the original ''The One Hour Dress: 21 New Designs with Complete Instructions for Making!'' Originally published in 1925! We scanned and reformatted a scare original and are pleased to offer you this wonderful vintage Flapper Era Frock Making reference for your reenactment or personal recreation sewing pleasures!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!

 

Our customers say:

''...I liked the first one so much I had to get the new updated version!
I have made several of these dresses, especially for my little girls who absolutely love them!''
