(The publication house/seller is also incredibly helpful.)
However, if you're hoping to jump right in and actually make a one-hour dress, there are only two things that are missing. One, is context about the types of fabrics suggested for this style of dress. I can't imagine making this up in anything stiff like taffeta, but the preferred fabrics are a bit of a mystery without a glossary of 1920's terms. Second, you need a "length" of fabric, and nowhere is it specified how you determine what a "length" is. A standard measurement? Your shoulder-to-floor measurement? I'm going with the latter, and I'll tell you how it goes.
