mad men dress

Holland, Michiga...






Found the perfect wool fabric that was destined for this sheath dress. Turned out exactly as I envisioned and a bit like the dresses on Mad Men. Although not a vintage pattern it has a definite vintage feel.

Material Notes

100% wool dress fully lined with the nice lining, not the chintzy stuff.

    It sure is something you’d see Joan in… looks great! And isn’t it nice those times the garments actually turn out the way you envisioned!?

    Love the fabric. Wool, really? Wish it weren’t so hot in FL or I’d use wool like that.

    It does look a little vintage-like, but I think its awesome. I love the vintage stuff. And that is so awesome how great the dress look with all your accessories. Great job!

    I’m starting to pull towards the vintage items. But I seem to ask myself is it really worth it since the today’s looks are really just a repeat of yesterdays? I am really inlove with the jumpsuits and the Jackie O look.
