I finished my Megan dress yesterday - exactly on the deadline of Mad Men Dress Challenge 3 but I couldn't publish my project in the blog. I took some pictures last night but the result wasn't so clear, so I took pictures again today and publish it as soon as I finished.
My dress is inspired by Megan Draper 60's style yellow dress, but I made some changes according to my own style,
- Make the dress length a little bit longer
- Sewn 6 buttons on the skirt front flap instead of 4 buttons
- The belt finished with snap-fasteners in the back side of the dress
And for the skirt flap lining, I used silk polyester fabric.
|med weight crepe fabric|
|silk polyester lining fabric|
|back and front pieces|
I sew the skirt flap and the lining right sides facing- on the skirt top and sides only - leave the bottom open, turn it inside out. Press it with iron and hand sewn the bottom.

And the last work is hand sewn the hem. Done!
Here are more pictures of me wearing my dress,
Happy sewing and have a wonderful Wednesday to you all!
