Description

Doesn’t this look like something Joan from Mad Men would wear? I made this from Simplicity 3673, which is a reissue of a vintage pattern. I had to do quite a bit of finessing to get the fit I wanted. I wrote all about it on my blog at:
Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing

Material Notes

Emerald Green wool crepe from Paron Fabrics in New York City

Difficulty

Novice
