Description

I made this cocktail dress in order to participate in Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Challenge 3! I used a pink silk fabric with a very fine texture. I loved the pattern’s bodice (Burda Vintage Dress 5/2012), although i couldn’t understand all the instructions and maybe i did some mistakes…Anyway, i quite pleased with the outcome even if it’s not perfect!

Material Notes

silk fabric, lining

    The back is fabulous! It has such a wonderful drape. I hope you go out for martini’s a lot!

    Oh, this is so elegant! I’ve had my eye on this pattern for a while. I just don’t need a fancy new dress.

    Great choice for the Mad Men challenge.

    gorgeous dress. The pink really suits you and the fabric falls nicely. One of my favourite patterns (but I too had problems with the instructions)

    Είναι απλά τέλειο! Το χρώμα, η εφαρμογή, το styling (συμπεριλαμβανομένου και αυτό του σπιτιού). Well done lomarilou. Go Ioannina, Go!!

    I love the back of the dress and the fabric you selected. Pretty color on you too. I can picture Joan wearing it :) I love that show.
