Mad Men Challenge



Well, the season six cast photos are out and clearly I’m going to have to rethink my Joan dress. I’ll just whip up this little number.

Anyone working on the challenge? Seen the new photos?

Season Six begins April 7.

Happy Sewing!!

    • I only wish I had the talent and waist and the hips, and that lovely fabric, trim, etc. etc.!! Thanks for the positive thoughts, but for now this is just a fantasy. 🙂 So far the dress I’m thinking of actually making is looking okay, so I’ll be happy with that for this year.

  1. Ahh, yes! That dress! I may have drooled. If a peacock was human it would be Joan in that dress. Does that make sense? Ha! Anyway, I’m drooling. I love some of the Megan shots, too. I finally found my fabric today so I’ll start constructing soon. Good luck on yours, can’t wait to see what you make! Xx

    • I love the peacock statement, Jamie, and yes it totally makes sense. I’m so glad you got your fabric. Isn’t it a great feeling? I finished my wearable muslin tonight, but will probably take my time cutting into the real fabric. The dress I’m working on is really simple and basic, but it will do. Maybe next year I’ll deem myself worthy of becoming a peacock. 🙂 In the meantime, good luck and have fun with yours.

  2. Love. It. I am doing the mad men challenge… But this makes me feel bad about my entry. This is so nice! Can’t wait for the new season!

    • Eek, didn’t mean to make anyone feel bad, Cherie. I only want us stitching fools to feel good that we have these beautiful dresses to drool over in the coming season. 🙂 The dress I’m actually making for the Mad Men challenge is pretty basic. Just did the muslin tonight and, while I’m quite find of it, it’s nothing like the blue and gold heaven that I posted today. I’m sewing my take on the black with red roses dress from the season five cast photos, and am so looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.

  3. I’m not participating in the challenge, but thanks for posting this link… I *can’t wait* for the new season — they all look HOT! 🙂 It’s nice to “meet” you, Shel! 🙂
