I need another project like a need a hole in the head, but this one was irresistable!!!
This challenge is run over at Julia Bobbin (you can check out the post here) and the idea is that you find a dress from Mad Men that you love and you create your own version. Luckily I have until the 19th of April to get this done!
Now I haven't watched a lot of the Mad Men seasons (hubby's not a fan) but from what I have watched it was a toss up between a Joan dress and a Betty dress. I think my figure lends itself more to Joan's style than Betty's so I google image searched and came up with this one.
What do you think of my choice???
By the way - the Mad Men doll - whats the go there! That stick figure couldn't look less like Joan if it tried!!!!
But back to the dress.... blue is a good colour on me and I like the details and the little wing collar. And I've found me some blue pure wool crepe to make it up in because I thought it would be a great dress coming into the colder season here in Australia. I've also found a similar brooch and a pen necklace!
The one thing I'm really struggling with is finding a similar patterned fabric, so I'm putting the call out there to the universe - does any one have anything similar, or know where I can get something similar. I don't need very much of it at all - its only for the dickie and the cuffs, so all I'm really looking for is a remnant...
I have my fingers crossed!!!!
