Us UK types are waiting with bated breath for the first screening of Mad Men tonight! I’ve joined in with Julia Bobbin’s most awesome challenge: To make a Mad Men dress, in honour of its return!
I selected a Joanie dress (like about 80% of everyone doing the challenge!) and used Simplicity 5961.
I reduced the shoulder width by 3/4″ each side and reduced the bodice width by about 1/4″ to the waist area.I had bought ribbon for the trim but bias binding worked much better on the curves. I liked it so much – I stuck it on the sleeves as well!
If you have time pop on over to my blog for more silly pics and info
Just gonna mix myself a cocktail and settle in for the night!
