Charlotte Hall, ...
I made this dress for Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Dress Challenge #2. I included my inspiration dress in the photo gallery. It’s a teal dress that Joan wore in season 5.
I used the pattern in the photo gallery as a base pattern, but I made several alterations and additions, as you can see. I added buttons on the front bodice, changed the neckline and drafted a collar to go with the neckline. Then, I drafted new facing pieces for the front and back. I lengthened the darts on the front and back of the skirt. I also had to take the darts in a bit more at the waist.
You can see more photos and details in this post.
