Mad men, dress in the style of Joan

For Julia’s third Mad Men challenge, and my first, I tried my first ever knit dress. I was after a look inspired by Joan. Joan wears many gorgeous figure hugging frocks and often some amazing long necklaces to complement her look.

I used Simplicity 1653 which is a mock-wrap style with wool modal knit. It was a steep learning curve sewing knit for the first time. I have more info over on my blog. Thanks for reading and happy sewing.
