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!
