By the Way, Meet Vera Stark spanned from 1930 to 1970 and the modern day. For the 1930's, I constructed an apron for Vera with an Art Deco-inspired detailing. I also built Gloria Mitchell's red floral dress for the 70's scene, with sheer gathered sleeves, a center back zipper, and a double-layered ruffle along the bottom.
