Mad Men Inspired Dress – Simplicity 2955

December 9, 2013

Hi all!

I just wanted to share a dress that I made over a year ago! I’ve been wearing it a lot lately since I have to wear all black to work. My only regret is not making the matching bolero and cummerbund. One day!

I used Simplicity 2955 from 1955 and used a linen mix for the fabric. I love the feel of the fabric, but it does wrinkle a lot!

Here’s the dress!

Until next time!




  1. You look absolutely brilliant – good on you! It obviously is a vintage style dress, but somehow you manage to look both timeless and current!

  2. This dress is the most perfect dress I have ever seen. You look amazing! It’s so classy, clean and simple–but certainly ANYTHING but boring! Every woman should own this dress!
