I want to repair a big injustice. There’s always a lot of Mad men challenge; but what about Boardwalk empire!!?

There’s a lot of wonferful suits and gorgeous dresses, and skirts, and shirts! So, here is my own Boardwalk Empire challenge!

I looove the dress that Margaret Shcroeder wear in Season 1, episode 3. Look at this gorgeous low-cut dress, this buttons line, the knot, the skirt.

My version will be in a printed and a yellow viscose. I will do some covered buttons for the back. there will be a flare skirt.

I’ve copied a very basic Burda dress in order to modify it very easily.


The modified pattern on the next episode! :)

More details on my blog:

It will be in French, but if anyone have some questions i can answer ;)

That back button detail is all kinds of amazing. I think it’ll look great in those fabrics.

Great idea! Mad men is a fun show, but what about all the other decades? I for one would love a ‘That 70s show” sew along.
Cant wait to see your finished dress!
