Originally Published by the International Educational Publishing Company in 1923!


If you are the first to bid on this auction, using the buy-it-now option, YOU WIN! There is no chance of being outbid! DON'T WAIT!

Up for bid is a CD REPRODUCTION  of the original ''Dress Design & Finishing'' of WWI and Flapper Era Frocks,Dresses, Skirts and Blouses by the International Educational Publishing Company! This Arts & Crafts Era information was originally published in 1923! (Original is NOT for sale)

This HISTORIC CD Republication contains guidelines, instructions, diagrams, designs and instructional fundamentals for creating a variety of classic and stylish frocks, dresses, skirts and blouses from the WWI and flapper era. There are many ANTIQUE ARTS & CRAFTS ERA designs and instructions included which you can fancy up just as much or as little as you'd like with ribbonwork, embroidery, beadwork and more! There are many unique, antique pattern guidelines, instructions and diagrams for the ultra-feminine flapper attire! Great for the folks you hare involved in the SCA and reinactment groups!

The antique and vintage fabric, thread, patterns, etc., can be found on Atomic Mall quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a near by fabric, craft or hobby store…
