Remember the poll on which Mad Men dress I should sew? Well, 123 of you voted and this Drape Sleeves Dress worn by Ms Joan Holloway was top with 38% of the votes.
And here’s my humble knock-off version in robin egg blue poly.
based on this pattern which turned out to be Junior’s size!!! And had three missing pattern pieces!!!
More information on my Mad-ventures sewing it up and project photos on my first Sew Weekly post of the year here.
I was introduced to Picnik by Mena during the pin-up week on Sew Weekly last year and absolutely fell in love with what it could do only to be informed a few months later that the site would be closing down April 19. As such, I’ve decided that I should use it more while I still can. The photo above was a result of combining the 1960s (Mad Men era) and texture effects. Hope you like it:)
Have a blessed sewing week!
