Mad Men Challenge: the little (mad) bird

in 1950s

This is my first time actually sewing a vintage pattern and my first time posting! I started this skirt in the summer before college started up, but I got sidetracked by my 1000-miles-away-from-home school. But I finally finished it, and lookee here, it fits Julia’s Mad Men Challenge!

I used a 1957 Simplicity pattern in some super-fine, vintage brown corduroy, and I’m really happy with how it came out. More info on my blog here.
