I have to admit, I’ve only seen 1 episode of Mad Men. But when my colleague first saw me with this dress, she said it was like I just walked out of the set :) I love love love the fabric. This type of color is normally not my go to, I mostly buy very bright and vibrant colors, but when I saw the fabric texture, I just had to buy it and I’m so happy with how it turned out. The pattern is a very clean simple dress (from Dutch magazine Knipmode March 2015), accentuating the texture of the fabric. I found the pattern in my mom’s huge pattern stash, when I was looking for something suitable for the limited amount of fabric that I bought a couple of years ago (it wasn’t cheap). The dress is fully lined. I’m getting a lot of compliments with this dress and it was one of my summer’s favorites. Definitely using the pattern again.
