I’ve been working on this blog for a while but have been shy to share it outside the family. When I saw Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men sewing challenge though I knew I had to join.
So here’s the result – inspired by Betty Draper’s coffee date dress in Season 3. There’s something about the original scene’s lighting that completes the dress. I tried to capture the overall feel of the outfit with a more subtle color palette to suit my style.
For a fitted style, the dress is surprisingly comfortable to wear, thanks to the pleats in the skirt.
