Mad Men Entry: Betty Draper

September 26, 2009

My first official project submission! Although I am much more in the spirit of Joan (busty firecracker of a redhead), I had found this lovely fabric that seemed to be much more like something Betty Draper would be inclined to wear. I used a pattern from Butterick’s Retro line B5209 and it worked fairly well with some modifications.

  1. Wow, thanks everyone for such amazing comments:) I've photographed my Joan outfit, hopefully I'll be able to post it Tuesday night!

  2. this is the first time I have see anyone do this with the cap sleeves, (which is the version I made) I love it so much more than the halter and it seems to have less problems… this looks fabulous.
