Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s: Make a Yoke and Add a Dress To It!

In this tip from Ruth Wyeth Spears, she tells her 1920s home sewists that dresses as sketched here "are new in the Parisian mode". And who wouldn't want the latest dress styles from Paris? This tip illustrates just how easy it is to sew a very fashionable 1920s frock. Happy sewing!

Let me know if you sew a dress using this tip!


  1. This is so great. If I can ever find some suitable fabric I am absolutely going to try to make this. The styles of the 1920's were so beautiful and practical.

  2. I actually used to make blouses this way back in the early 70's when I was in college. I had some long scraps of a silky polyester that worked beautifully for this type of pattern, and very comfortable to wear, also!

    1. I love the idea of using this technique for blouses. Thanks, mamafrog!
