Here's a side by side comparison with the original:
I have been wanting to make a copy of this Mad Men dress for years!!! I was first inspired by Julia Bobbin, who did a great remake of this dress.
I used the "Wiggle Dress" pattern from Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing. I had to do some adjustments to the neckline because it was a bit too wide for me.
My hubby liked it so it's a win!
I am so flattered and surprised to have my dress be apart of the top twenty garments for the "Dress Up Party" challenge on sewsweetness.com. If you would vote for me I would be so grateful!If you already have, thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I did something odd....I took apart the whole dress, took two inches out, and sewed it all up again, because I had to! Here are some pictures:
Sitting down makes the dress a bit tiiiight but the fit is better!
Wish me luck!
