The One Hour Dress 17 Designs Flapper Fashions 1920s Mary Brooks Picken Vintage Sewing Instructions

You can make beautiful 1920s flapper dresses in just one hour

Mary Brooks Picken was the Director of Instruction at The Womens Institute Of Domestic Arts And Sciences in Scranton Pennsylvania during the 1920s. She was well known for her excellent designs for fashionable womens clothing at this time. Perhaps her most famous publication was this book on how to make a dress in only one hour. In it she gives instructions on how to design both one piece and two piece dresses which can be made in one hour.

The one hour dress is based on a very simple draped design which saves on sewing time and makes it possible to turn out these dresses in just one hour. The basic design is the same for all of them but the details and style are different so that each dress is completely a design in its own right.

Complete detailed instructions with illustrations of every step are given so that even a raw beginner at dress making can make these dresses very quickly. The idea was that any woman could have a nice selection of dresses at minimal cost and with minimal skill required to make them.

This was quite an achievement in dress design and Mary Brooks Picken received much praise for her work and designs at the time.

The The Women's Institute Of Domestic Arts And Sciences in Scranton Pennsylvania was the worlds biggest school of dressmaking and design in the 1920s. Ms. Picken held the prestigious position of Director Of Instruction at this famous institution, which was responsible for influencing the design of women's clothing at this time perhaps more than any other factor.

This book which she authored and published has become one of the most widely read and used dressmaking books ever. The large number of one hour dress designs in both one piece and two piece styles attracts dressmakers to this day because of their simplicity and fabulous 1920s style.
