In a sort of Advents-Kalendar way, I will post 'red' for each day of December through Christmas and link the image as closely as possible to EvaDress Patterns (in pattern tour form)!
Here is the eighth, 'Cranberry Leaves cut into chiffon' that line and this photo per

Sew the look with our 1934 McCall Finned Evening Gown Pattern ( this is one of three pins that made nearly 24K impressions in the last week, BTW!):

Originally by McCall, this is a remarkable example of 1930's detailing! The bodice and skirt front are in one and shaped at the waistline with tucks for fitting.  Fins of narrowly hemmed flounces are incorporated at the side seams of the skirt front and back and placed along the optional sleeves.

Because the instructions were missing from the original pattern, I have provided un-illustrated instructions and the gown is surprisingly simple to put together for the intermediate sewing level.

Here are some smashing examples customers made using this pattern:
