Description

This is my contribution to Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men dress challenge. I based my dress on Betty’s awesome style – I love her 1950’s frock, and the girl does rock a floral print like nobody’s business!

I used Simplicity 1873 for the pattern, and a printed stretch cotton sateen for the dress. You can check it out more on my blog, Jorth!

Material Notes

1.8m cotton sateen
.5m lining
Invisible zipper, interfacing, buttons

    I love, love love this dress! I have to make one just like it! I am a floral-fanatic and the fabric you chose is just divine, nice work!
