I made this dress especially to participate on Mad Men Sewing Challenge hosted by Julia Bobin. Inspired by Megan Draper 60’s style yellow dress. For the pattern, I used Vogue 8228 size 6 with modifications.
This dress has princess seams, sleeveless, knee length, front skirt flap finishing with 6 buttons and invisible zipper on the back. I used medium weight crepe fabric in deep pink color and silk polyester for flap lining.
