My Mad Men tribute dress is finally done! And it got photographed! Score! I love this dress. It’s a modified Pastille Dress from The Colette Patterns Handbook. I used a fabric I bought at Mood in New York and I must say, I feel very much like Miss. H in this dress!

      Haha, oh, goodness, I don’t know if I’m wearing it or it’s wearing me, but what can I do, no amount of gym classes completely erases my curves! Thank you, I love this color too.

    Your dress is beautiful. I love the colour, very Joan indeed. And the picture in the dinner looks like it comes directly out of the 50’s.

      Hahaha, that’s because it IS from the 50’s , it’s a diner that has been in Philadelphia since the 50’s! Thank you!
