Madmen challenge 3 a bit of Joan

in 1960s

 

For my   entry in Julia’s challenge I decided to channel a bit of Joan.   The pattern is Burda 7178 which I think is quite authentic to the period.  I love the huge collar and pretty pleased overall, though the skirt could be tighter (or my curves bigger).  For more details please visit my blog at http://magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk

A very nice version of Joan’s typical jewel-toned wiggle dress.

What a lovely dress and the colour looks great on you.
I can see what you mean about the skirt but this way it will be easier to wear in real life.
