‘Specially for those of us who have a stupendous fabric stash, a festive shindig to attend, and little time, The Great Drapo shows us how to construct a vintage frock without a lick of sewing…or even any straight pins! The Great Drapo, AKA Alphonse Bergé and an ex-London window display designer appeared as the Great Drapo for millions of visitors to the New York World’s Fair. You can read more about him in this LIFE Magazine article circa August 1940. We adore the last gown; an elegant, one-shouldered bridal gown for any last minute city hall shotgun wedding!
