San Diego, Calif...
I was watching MadMen and decided that I could make one of the awesomely feminine dress featured on the show. I used Butterick B5813 then deviated way too much.
When I get back to the supply store I’m going to add Frogs as a final final touch since I didn’t use the collar.
If I ever make this again I’m not using all 28 darts, probably taking the lining out of the sleeves and I might try adding the collar.
Overall this was above my skill level but fun.
This was my first experiment with lining. I hate lining.
