This is my homage to the gorgeous Joan from Mad Men. I used New Look 6000, which is a great pattern to sew and very easy. It was also my first time sewing with double knit and Iā€™m thrilled it was so straight forward. Lots more pictures and construction details on my blog

    I really like your dress and the red double knit fabric really suits you. I love sewing double knit and it is so comfortable to wear and requires little ironing which is a huge bonus in my mind!! I am sure this will become one of your favourite dresses.
