For Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Challenge I used vintage Simplicity 8722. My inspiration was a dress Megan wore in Season 5. The pattern has a keyhole neckline, front darts and contour darts in the back. I opted to leave the sleeves off and lengthened the hem line a couple inches. The fabric used was a cotton blend with a slight stretch. For more details of this dress you can read my blog post about it here
