Vintage Love

7 Sep

The big day is almost here! The wedding is on Saturday and I spent this past weekend working on a dress to wear. I was originally going to tackle a cute Cynthia Rowley pattern.. last minute I changed my mind because I found some inspiration- Mad Men. I’ve been getting my Mad Men fix via Netflix. I love everything about this show, the story, the fashion, the set decor… all of it! I found this pattern from Vintage Vogue and couldn’t resist. I know it’s not a style from the 60’s… but I fell in love.

I found this great crepe fabric at my local Joann’s for 30% off. I have lately had this obsession with dark blue ever since I bought this cute maxi dress from Forever 21 about 6 months back. I think this color is my new black! I also selected this color because I knew it would look great with a vintage coat that I plan on wearing as well. I’ll post pictures from the wedding next week.

I was a little worried about making this dress. I have heard that Vintage patterns can be hard to make since they are so tailored. I am very happy with how the dress turned out. I did have to take in the sides to make it more fitted, but that turned out to be an easy alteration. I can’t wait to wear my new dress and even more excited to see my friend get married!
