Tampa, Florida, ...
When I saw Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men sewing challenge I knew I had to join.
So here’s the result – inspired by Betty Draper’s coffee date dress in Season 3. There is something about the original scene’s lighting that completes the dress. I tried to capture the overall feel of the outfit with a more subtle color palette to suit my style.
The pattern is based on Vogue 8511. Fabric is a linen mix purchased 2 years ago from Shibuya Marunan while I was living in Tokyo, Japan. The dress is fully lined with cotton.
For a fitted style, the dress is surprisingly comfortable to wear, thanks to the pleats in the skirt.
