I decided to watch an episode of it the other day because one of my sewing friends told me a while back that she was surprised I didn’t watch it because of the ladies’ fashion that the show features…Now while I don’t usually watch shows for the characters’ style of dress, I must admit that I now tune in to MAD MEN because of their impeccable style…Both women and men…Now while style is the main reason I am now a super fan, it is definitely not the only reason…the show is just beyond cool; you have to watch it to understand…I didn’t realize that I was already a MAD MEN kinda gal when I started buying patterns or when I started to watch the show…I didn’t know anything about it….You can bet I do now! (smiles and hauteness in 50’s and 60’s style forever)
Maybe all my dresses I have whipped up with the exception of one or two give you a “back in the day” woman type feel and it was purposely done…Sex appeal without all the raunch is my fortay and sewing makes it bunches easier to convey just that….Now that I’m aware of my official MAD MEN dress craze I had to whip up a dress for the epiphany…..
I sewed up New Look Pattern #0167 View A…..I added a tie belt from another New Look Pattern in my stash to finish off the dress…..Now I will share the photos because I need to make some dinner…be back when I can and if you have time tell me whatcha’ think of my new diggs….;)
