Mad Men Dress Sew Along Starts Monday

We have definitely had enough interest. So, we will be starting the Mad Men dress sewalong on Monday. We have decided to use New Look 6968 as the pattern for the dress. It is a nice basic pattern with a lot of room for individuality. To get you excited here are a bunch of ready to wear dresses made with the same basic pattern.

Hopefully this will show you all of the possibilities. And once you are excited then go get your pattern and some muslin for a trial run (yep, that's right, we are going to make a muslin for this one to make sure that the fit is perfect).

If you would like to sign up for the Mad Men sew along please comment on this post along with a link to your blog if you have one.

    Will you be offering a sewalong button that I can proudly display on my (newish) blog? :)

  5. I'd love to join... certainly I will be on a slower pace than anyone else... I will make my own pattern adapting my basic bodice http://bombardone.com/sewingprincess/2010/09/summer-breeze-top/

  10. Wow, I'm the 3rd Kelli to be participating! That's a little unusual... I almost never make clothing for myself, but how can I pass this chic sheath up? I'm going to the fabric store this weekend, so I'll pick up the pattern and some muslin fabric then.

  11. Very tempted to join this sew along. How do they work though? Is there a time frame for instance? I am wondering if I have some stash fabric to use for this...how can I not right? My husband and I have been watching Mad Men through Netflix and have been so enjoying see people dressed like real adults. Hope this trend catches on.

  13. That is such a great idea! I would have definitely been in on it but I guess I'm a little late! I did make a copy of the Anthro dress on the bottom right though recently. I posted about it here:

    I'll be following along anyway, that looks like a cute pattern :).
