Lisette traveler take 2 - Mad Men challenge dress

Added Apr 28, 2013

Surrey, United K...






This is my second version of the Lisette Traveller (see first version here)

I tweaked the pattern a bit for my entry for the Mad Men challenge, trying to imitate Betty’s dress. It ended up looking a bit like a nurse’s uniform, so I’m going to experiment with accessories to make it more wearable.

For how to make a small bust adjustment on the pattern, see my tutorial here

Printed medium weight cotton


Spring, Summer, Fall
