The Joan Holloway copy-cat

Added Feb 18, 2012

Melbourne, Austr...






I know I’m not the only one when I say I love the show Mad Men.

Which is to say I love I love the clothes.

Which is to say I love Joanie.


I’ve decided to embrace my obsession and have created a challenge to the sewing community to get their ‘Mad Men’ on and do a copy-cat of their own! Are You in?
See my blog at JuliaBobbin for details on the Mad Men dress challenge and to join in the fun.

This dress is one of my latest made with blue cotton drill, white ribbon and fully lined. It has already turned into one of my favourites.

For an indecent amount of photos and more details, visit my blog at JuliaBobbin

    I’m not mad about mad men, but gosh this dress is cool. And I do think it’s better than the original
