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 ūüėČ

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

Have a great weekend everyone!
