Description

Here is the dress I made for Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Challenge 2. The dress is a lot like one that appeared in season 3 worn by Betty Draper. I’m glad I now have such a cute dress in my wardrobe.

The front has pin tucks, the neckline and bodice front has hand stitched embroidery, the skirt has mini pleats and the edges have scalloped edges. See more on the ariation blog.

Material Notes

Lightweight polka dot fabric, Black embroidery thread, 5 snap fasteners, biased binding, satin for the undergarment

Difficulty

Intermediate
