Pattern for Vintage Sewing Contest

I've decided to enter the vintage sewing contest at Pattern Review. This is one of the dresses I've decided to make.

I'm also going to make a basic dress for Greta using a vintage pattern I have. I have to figure out how to make a crinoline so she gets that super poofy vintage look! I think I'll just wing the slip/crinolinefor her

My plans also include making a purse and a slip (my fabric is a sheer rayon) and I might attempt to make a hat using instructions from the book It's Fun to Make A Hat (love that title!)

Once, when I needed a crinoline, I sewed about 2 1/2 or triple length of tulle, about 1/3 of the way down the waistline, on a skirt (cylinder shape with an elastic waist) made of lining material. I used tulle that was a bit firm so that it would hold the skirt out properly.
