Made from Vogue 8667, this is a knock off mad men wiggle dress (worn by Peggy in the second season I think). It is pretty similar to her dress, except hers has sleeves, buttons down the front and a front split.
I put some more pics on Sew-creative-girl.blogspot.com , so you can compare there if you like. I found the instructions a bit tricky in places, as I am more of a novice sewer, and this was my first time using a vogue pattern and fully lining a dress. This pattern is a fully lined dress,with a back zip, front collar and knee length pencil skirt.
Checked flanelette cotton, synthetic lining
