Wow - fabulous Mad Women dress - better than the original. I had looked at this pattern, but was put off by the lack of sleeves, so will use your review to have another look.

Love this! Wonderful interpretation of the original and fit is fantastic. The bias trim at the empire seam is just too cute.

This is an amazing design and you should be very proud!! I love vintage designs, and wish the Mad Men series was back on so that I could drool over outfits like these. Well Done!
