Mad Men Dress Challenge 2…I’m In!


The wonderful Julia Bobbin is hosting another Mad Men Dress Challenge to celebrate the start of season 6! Though my body style is similar to Joan, I love all the floral dresses both Betty and Trudy wear. Now the decision is which pattern and fabric to choose…

I have 3 yards of black rayon with bright red poppies that would make a superb wiggle dress similar to Joan’s black and red rose dress and I even have a vintage pattern, Simplicity 5939 that begs to be sewn.

Even so, I am drooling over the new Amy Butler Alchemy line of voiles that would look perfect with a gathered dress and small crinoline. Hopefully I can decide early enough to actually stitch a dress before Easter!

  1. How exciting, good luck. I’ve just started a new dress which is very Audrey Hepburn, I’m wondering if that would work?

    • I would think so. Some of Megan’s clothing from the first season she was on the show were more like Audrey’s. I picture cigarette pants and “artsy” type clothing for Megan when I think of her. Audrey Hepburn had such an iconic style, you can’t go wrong emulating her!
