Description

This is the dress I made for the 2nd Mad Men Challenge. It’s a copy of a dress Peggy wore in season 2 in a business party. I drafted the pattern myself and used a bright blue silk Dupioni. The sash is removable.

    gorgeous dress and so like the origonal. you did a smashing job on this and as for drafting it yourself, well done. i love the shape of this dress, very 50,s. the skirt ruffle and detachable bow are wonderful touches. the bow would look fab on the shoulder as well and maybe on the back waist? fab dress and fab colour x
