Another Megan Draper Dress

April 24, 2013


I decided to double up on to-do tasks and stitch up my very first version of Colette’s new Laurel for JuliaBobbin’s 2nd Mad Men Challenge. I was inspired my Megan Draper’s colorful, modern prints (as were some other challenge participants!) and lucky for me I had the perfect stretch cotton in my tub already!

I had a great run of luck on this project, because I did not make a muslin for this pattern, but I think it fits rather nicely! The shift style and the gathered sleeve cuffs, paired with my wild paisley print, make this retro dress very late 60s, dont you think?

  1. Wow, this looks really awesome! The fabric is really nice and it suits you perfectly, especially with the bun and the bow and your eyes 😉

  2. All the crazy bows are one of my favorite aspects of the MadMen outfits, I’m glad you added that touch. And super cute dress, you definitely look like one of the secretaries!
