OK, so maybe I HAVE been watching too much Mad Men this summer.
BUT THOSE DRESSES!!!!
I just can’t get enough!
I want one…….
I found this little number at the thrift store the other day and made it into this:
First look in the mirror and pull the dress up until you get the desired hem length. Mark with safety pins where you would like the bottom of the bodice and the top of the skirt.
Stretch some quarter inch elastic around your waist to the desired tension. Cut and sew onto seam allowance, stretching as you sew to create a gathered look.
Now you could walk right into Sterling Cooper with your steno pad and start taking dictation for Don Draper.
And I seriously made it in ten minutes yesterday.
