Three weeks ago I went to a fabulous wedding and made this ‘Mad Men’ inspired dress for the occasion. Inspired by Betty Draper and her maternity wardrobe, I made this french lace number using McCall 6322.
This dress is perfect for my growing belly, pictured here at week 23 of my pregnancy.
The dress is underlined, lined, and has a sneaky little placket at the back of the skirt to keep the pattern of the lace unbroken.
