Who remembers my complete obsession with Mad Men?…well its STILL going strong and I on the lookout for the seasons on DVD or Blu-ray….I love the old school fashion and how its still so “me” now….I decided to rock a dress I made a few months ago with my Mad Men in mind….this is New Look’s pattern # 0110 View D….I know I blogged about it a while back when I finished it but I’ve never worn it until today….I was going to belt it but when I put it on it I felt it was cool how it was….I absolutely LOVE this dress…its so comfortable and the neckline is just awesome; I mean just friggin’ awesome….it came out so well…the zipper, along with the hook and eye also installed damn good…I’m getting so much better at those things….I always put my own spin on stuff and the sleeves show my style a little bit…I have serger stitches on my machine and I finished the sleeves that way….I used a printed knit fabric from Hancock’s (of course) and the drape and feel are just right….this pattern has 4 or 5 views and I’m pretty sure I’ll get around to whipping em all up sooner or later….Since it was kinda brisk and rainy I couldn’t rock my heels so I threw on my trusty boots….This dress was inspired by the lovely red-head named Joan from the show…and anybody that watches the show knows she can rock a dress honey!!!!!….Well since there are quite a few pictures I wanna share I’ll shut up now and show em….talk to you good folks soon!
Neckline is FIERCE……check my sleeves though….this is “my dress is sooo HOT” face…LOL
vintage button from my Mama’s stash…..that neckline though…..
tried to get a shot of the hook and eye…they are pretty hard to photograph….well the small ones are….
