A dress inspired by the exceedingly gorgeous Joan Holloway from Mad Men. I drafted the pattern myself and the sleeve tucks and the pockets took me forever to get right (I want appreciation, dammit)! More pictures on my blog
Made from Irish linen/viscose blend. Probably a poor choice of fabric for this dress. I think it would be better in something stiffer that creases less.
