Mad about Peggy

Added Jan 9, 2012

Melbourne, Austr...






When the ‘Mad Men’ fever takes hold I become consumed with obsessive thoughts on how to re-create the dress that has become the focus of my latest obsession.

Meet my latest copy-cat; a gingham print dress worn by the character Peggy Olson from the TV series ‘Mad Men.’ She is so sweet it makes me want to douse my eyes in sugar syrup.

And no, I haven’t chopped off my locks, I’ve gotten tricky and pinned it all up and under to make it look like I have a bob hair cut! Sneaky!

For details on how I recreated this dress and a gazillion (sure, that’s a word) more photos, visit my blog at JuliaBobbin

    Fantastic as always. And I love that you matched up the gingham on the front bodice and skirt so that the lines go the whole way down the dress. The purple button is a perfect finishing touch.
