I decided to double up on to-do tasks and stitch up my very first version of Colette’s new Laurel for JuliaBobbin’s 2nd Mad Men Challenge. I was inspired my Megan Draper’s colorful, modern prints (as were some other challenge participants!) and lucky for me I had the perfect stretch cotton in my tub already!
I had a great run of luck on this project, because I did not make a muslin for this pattern, but I think it fits rather nicely! The shift style and the gathered sleeve cuffs, paired with my wild paisley print, make this retro dress very late 60s, dont you think?
