Outfit #64 - Madmen fashion inspired!

Ok, so I've got a few posts on the way, but this week we're heading to Melbs for a holiday, and have a bit of things to get done before blogging UNFORTUNATELY!

But here's a vintage inspired dress, a smidge Madman! Here's the pattern I used, but as a lot of the older patterns have smaller waists, I made sure I let the waistline go a bit, but still it's flattering:

On the right gal, it'll be a perfect wiggle dress! It's 64 outta my goal of 100, and I'm thinking to do a dress a day in July to boost the numbers up! My friends have done 'Dry July' before, where they don't drink for a month, and raise funds for a hospital. So perhaps I can come up with a catchy name to go with July's Dress a Day efforts... 'Sew-vember' would be a better month... I'll have to think about it or ask my puntastic friends!


  1. I'm so impressed! I love me so good Mad Men fashion. Hot stuff!

  2. I saw your post on google reader , it didn't display the title and quickly thought Mad Men...Duh. you are already on the mark lol

  3. You crack me up... love the new dress btw!!

  4. This is a great dress.

  5. Yellow is so hot right now, ha! the ruffeled bag was from a burdastyle how to. That website is such a good resource even if it is annoyingly slow for me always. Trying to think of a pun for you but July is hard to Rhyme! Ha! xx j.

  6. Hi, I just found your blog! Love your stuff-- how ambitious to do 100 dresses! You are going to have an amazing wardrobe! I'd love to see a picture of how the yellow Mad Med dress looks on.


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
