Mad Men Dress – the nonexistant result…


My Mad Men dress was a bust, I was away the days leading up to the contest and my second practice dress had been another disaster, I have decided to work on skirts more, bodices seem to be eluding me.

I still have my fabric that I was going to use for this dress so I will have to think of what to use it for.


Any suggestions?



I also just discovered that the deadline had been extended… to yesterday… lol

    How much of the fabric do you have? You could still make a really nice summer dress out of it, and use that fabric as the skirt and pick out one of the colors in it as a solid for the bodice?

      I am pretty sure that I bought two meters. I like your idea, I might try that but use a tank top for the bodice since I still have so much trouble making one to fit.

        2 meters should be good to make a big circle skirt. You could always make a skirt instead of a dress, that would give you a lot more versatility with how you wore it.
        If you need help getting bodice’s to fit, shoot me a e-mail. I don’t have the typical body size so it’s something I’ve had to get good at and I might be able to help.

        Thanks very much! When life slows down and I have time to sew I will contact you for sure!

  2. I don’t have any ideas but that fabric is beautiful!
