Finished Project: Betty Draper Mad Men Challenge Dress

My first sewing challenge is completed!

Thank you to Julia Bobbin for hosting this amazing event. Here are some pictures of the finished dress. You can read about my progress here and here.

I am quite pleased with how the dress turned out. As always, the By Hand London patterns I used (Anna bodice and Charlotte skirt) sewed up beautifully. There were so many self-drafted parts to this dress and I pushed myself beyond my sewing comfort zone, but that’s what a challenge is for, right?

I’m so glad I got this post completed in time for it to be added to the final Mad Med Challenge #3 roundup!
