An EvaDress 'Advents-Kalendar' of RED! Day 16

Alexandra Reynolds 1920's costume crinoline dress EvaDress Pattern Challenge! EvaDress Patterns evening evening gown formal frock panier Pattern Tour Vintage Patterns

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 sixteenth, a 1920's Robe de Style Dress, per:
1920's Robe de Style Dress
Sew the look using our Robe de Style pattern originally by Butterick:
1920's Robe de Style Pattern, originally by Butterick
I chose the extant example above not only because it is red, but also because its transparency demonstrates a simple panier structure similar to that under the skirt of this Butterick pattern I have drafted to multiple sizes.
I issued this pattern in anticipation of my 'It's the 20's Again' EvaDress Pattern Challenge.  I recently received the first completed submission for that challenge which is the Robe de Style by a customer in Florida:

Known for its full, dropped waist skirt at a time of popular straight-cut dresses, this Robe de Style pattern comes with pieces and instructions to make the paniers (to go under the dress), the bows and fabric flowers and leaves for embellishment.
