Betty Draper pink pencil dress Simplicity 6123

October 25, 2013

I am totally in love with this print, even after staring at it the last few nights to make it in time for the Project Sewn signature style reader challenge. I used the bodice from Simplicity 6123 view B but with no sleeves which I had in my stash and the skirt was self drafted as I had already made a custom pencil skirt block that fit me better than the simplicity 6123 one. I lined the dress with a seafoam polyester lining, to go with the accent seafoam in the botanical print. I cut a size 10 in the bodice and the fashion fabric is cotton.

I was inspired by this gorgeous hot pink Betty Draper dress:
