The Mad Men pattern bundle combines our two vintage-inspired loves, Betty and Joan. Named after Lisa’s favourite Mad Men characters, both dresses have timeless style and an instant appeal. Wonderful occasion dresses, Betty will take you from summer weddings to new year’s eve parties in style, whereas Joan is the perfect candidate for Christmas celebrations and that special meal out.
Make yourself a beautiful 1950’s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper!
With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty is super flattering for all figures, nipping you in at the waist and flaring out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.
Based on the wardrobe of Mad Men’s iconic Joan Holloway, the Joan Dress is the latest vintage-inspired pattern to be added to our collection.
A fitted bodice and skirt gives the dress a sassy, feminine feel that the real Joan herself would adore. The bodice is fitted with darts at the waist and back shoulder, and features a gently scooped neckline. Stylish ¾ length sleeves and a 60s inspired tie collar give the dress a super elegant feel. Designed to hit below the knee, the skirt is semi-fitted with darts and sports a kick pleat at the back hem. The whole dress is fully lined, giving you a gorgeously professional-feeling finish.
Both patterns come in UK sizes 8-20 and are suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate dressmakers.
