Mad men challenge 2

It was a bit of a last minute decision to enter Julia Bobbin's contest this year but with an extension until tomorrow, I thought between then and Friday was enough time to whip something up.

I based my dress on the gem tones of Joan Harris in this outfit.

I really envy this woman's wardrobe.

This dress is based on the Colette Laurel pattern and also doubles as an entry into their competition. I added the pockets from the pattern and the extra pink welt. I lengthened the sleeves from half to 3/4 for a winter friendly design and also manipulated the original collar to include the pink contrast and bow.


  1. Lovely colours, they look great on you.
    Very Joanie!!

  2. So excited to see your Joanie dress as a winner over at Colette Patterns! Well done you talented lady!

    1. Thank you! It's so exciting to be chosen out of some many entries!
