Finished Mad Men Dress

March 30, 2012

Sorry for the super cheesey cut out collage. I was in a rush to get this post up since technically Friday the 30th was YESTERDAY in Australia!

I would like to give Miss Julia a huge thank you for hosting such an awesome sewing challenge! I had a lot of fun planning this project, I only wish I blocked myself out more time to complete it. I may or may not have had time to hem the skirt bottom and sleeves πŸ˜‰

Tune in to Julia’s blog on April 1st for one amazing Mad Men dress parade!

Have a great weekend everyone!
