Mid-20’s Dress – Fraulein Schneider

Costume designer, draper and technician:  Laura Parker

This dress was created for Fraulein Schneider in William Peace University’s production of ‘Cabaret’.   Based off of ‘Superior Patterns – 1908’, a mid-20’s pattern, this simple style placed Fraulein Schneider firmly in the middle class in Wiemar Germany.  Sturdy, with just little hints of past wealth in the vintage lace cuffs and bodice detail.  I made some minor stylistic changes to the pattern to fit the actress a little better.

    I wish I knew how to grade up as well as you do :) You make some fabulous costumes- I bet your actors love them!
