Mad Men Challenge

Julia over at Julia Bobbin is hosting a Mad Men Dress Challenge!

And I'm just crazy enough to throw my name in the hat!

I am obsessed with the 50's and 60's silhouette.

Poetry night at my house. Dress from H&M, several years ago.

Christmas Buche de Noel

You can sort of see the trend, here. I'm curvy enough that this silhouette works for my body type.

So, let's see my inspiration list, right?

Considering this Joanie Dress. I love the neck detail. It reminds me of the free Burda Coffee Date Dress from The Selfish Seamstress.

A plane-jane Peggy dress. It looks to be half button with a peter-pan collar, bow and a belt.

I also really LOVE Trudy's party dress from Season 2. The combination of velvet and giant scale plaid, LOVE.

The front sash/tie detail is great. The neck line is great. I'll have to search through my patterns to see if I've got something that follows the basic lines.

And then there is this one. I love the lines. I love the color. But it looks technical in a way that quite frankly scares me.

I'm also having a hard time finding a collection of photos from the show, so I have started watching old episodes. I know, the things I do for the craft!

What dress did you select? Are you modifying a pattern or drafting your own?
