Description

Retro Butterick 5603 in a bright buttercup yellow.
This is my dress for the Madmen Challenge hosted by Julia Bobbin, inspired by a dress worn by Megan, the soon-to-be new Mrs Draper.
It’s the second dress I make from this pattern, I love the flattering waist and large boat neck.

    Thank you, all of you. I have to admit that I am not entirely happy about this dress, looks better on the photo than in real. But with a little work, it will be ready to wear very soon.
