Now that Sew For Victory has finished up its time to jump a decade or two ahead for the Mad Men Dress Challenge 2!
I spent an embarrassing amount of time looking for the perfect inspiration dress to be inspired by. I almost went with a dress of Joan’s but then I ran across this beauty and was smitten.
Of course who could resist that print, that waist and those adorable pleats… resistance was futile. I needed that dress!
The dress comes from season 2 when Peggy gets a little kitchen makeover. I found the screencaps from Tom + Lorenzo.
Just yesterday some of my gorgeous fabric arrived and I may have wrapped myself up on the couch and basked it the super beautiful and soft amazingness that is this cotton double gauze from Tomotake.
This is the pattern I snapped up from Etsy. It was the best pattern I was able to find which had the pleated skirt along with a special detail at the waist which I adored from the original! I will make a few adjustments and remove the sleeves since its already heating up here in Arizona!
