Make A Vintage Flapper Dress in One Hour??

Hmm.  I'm intrigued.  The Great Gatsby movie with Leonard DiCaprio is one of my favorite movies, mostly because of the music, photography, and costumes.  

I bought a sewing machine but I confess, I haven't used it more than about 4 or 5 times since I bought it a year ago.  There just isn't time.

Turns out that women in the 20's struggled to find time to sew as well.  Enter Mary Pickens and her one hour dress.  And what's even better?  No pattern.  

There's hope for all of us!  

Since Halloween is coming up next month, I'll see if I can get it done and post an update once complete.  Let's see if it really takes only one hour!

If any of you have tried this one hour dress pattern, like the one listed on the site below, let me know what your experience was!
