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! :)

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

This is my second version of this 50′s pattern.I really love the shape of the bodice, the naked back, and all these gorgeous hollow pleats!

My first version was in a printed cotton and metal buttons. I made it for the wedding of my best friend. (Seen here). I wanted a new version easier to wear in every-day life, and correct the few problems with the first version.

I cut it in June and only sew it this September!

I made it with denim-color linen, lined on the bodice with a blue cotton. There were some plastic button.
