Mad Men Challenge 3, Simplicity 2444, Betty Draper Roses Dress

Whew! I made it to the lovely Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men III with mere moments to spare. Truthfully, the deadline is April 1, 2014, but with heading into a work week, my personal deadline had to be tonight. And, to think that I didn’t find this pretty fabric until 2:00pm on Friday afternoon! GAAAAAK!!!! My weekend has been a blur of activity! Who knew the Mad Men Dress Challenge would drive me crazy?!!! Not only was there a veritable sea of dresses to choice from, but there are episode synopsis’s {eek, is that a word?} all over the Internet. Not having watched the series, I have come to learn that Mad Men is a big deal, I do live under a rock, and the Internet has both saved and forever damaged me. I could not stop reading about Don and his torrid affairs, about thin Betty, fat Betty, naive but oh so talented Peggy, the wheeling, the dealing, the babies, the business breakups, and the business makeups. I foresee a NetFlix binge of Mad Men in my future!

Okay dokey, a quick word about the Mad Men Dress Challenge III. It’s easy, and it’s fun! You can either recreate a dress worn by a cast member, or sew an outfit inspired by the show! We’ve had six weeks, and in my case, that means five and half weeks to think about it, and two days to sew. Again, um, why must I leave things until the last minute? Well, in my defense, this time I really did try to beat the last minute rush. I mentioned in an earlier post that friends had me pegged for Peggy Olson! And yup! I can totally see where that’s coming from. Gingham, check! Polka dots, check! But, none of her outfits made me swoon. The truth is, Megan’s gorgeous coral and white chevron striped coat had stolen my heart. GAH!!! I love that coat. But, could I find the fabric? Nuh uh! Sheesh! Let me tell ya, it took more than a little while to let go of that obsession. So, here’s the kicker…the turning point was when I admitted to myself that I wanted to be Betty Draper. Betty is pretty! Betty wears pretty! And Betty’s roses dress is all kinds of pretty!

I admittedly searched endlessly for fabric that was a close match to her dress, but the reds were always either too maroon red, {so not my colour} or the patterns too Christmas-y or juvenile. When I saw my fabric, I did a little happy dance all the way to the cutting table. This fabric is a dash of Betty and whole lotta Sue. The skirt is a basic rectangle with pleats at the top. The bodice, a major renovation on Simplicity pattern 2444. My plan had been to debut Simplicity 2444 next month, as in April, which YIKES, begins two days from now, but it worked really well as a template for my Betty bodice. Don’t worry, you’ll still be seeing another 2444! Betty’s dress has a decorative bow on a narrow waistband. Instead of the narrow waistband, I made a narrow belt; otherwise, I think my design is pretty spot on! I think I may do another post to show a bit of the insides. Julia will be publishing everyone’s photos and blog links on Sunday, April 6th. It’s going to be fun to see all the inspired versions!

Special thanks to Samson for being my Don Juan!

  • Reply No fear of fashion March 31, 2014 at 8:36 am

    The likeness is uncanny (is that the right phrase?). Honestly spitting image of Betty's dress. You have done such a good job. But pity you could not recreate the coat. Would have been nice too. Perhaps you will find the material next week haha.
    And I think you are a miracle worker to have made this dress in one weekend.

    You almost make me want to drag my sewing machine out and try to make friends with it again. Unfortunately, we didn't part on good terms, so that's not likely to happen. I'll settle for watching your triumphs instead!

  • Reply Sue @ A Colourful Canvas April 1, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Yes, Yes! The dress does feel very me Ann! With this kind of challenge, I think there can be a small risk of sewing something that doesn't feel right. It's easy to get caught up in the replicating of another outfit.

    Sad, though, the way the kitty stole your thunder. I'm with Curtise … and sure it was the kitty who has the admired fluffy butt!

    What a fabulous dress, Sue! So retro, and so modern at the same time. Love the fabric-you'd need something CRISP to make those pleats just so! I watched a few Mad Men episodes, and felt an obsession coming on, so I turned away…but long to mix up a few martini's slip into a dress like yours, and watch, and watch, and watch…

  • Reply Renae of Simple Sequins April 2, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Very good, Sue! I know that my Mom had a dress like that in the 60's. There is a photo of her in it, yet hers was deep blues and greens and shiny taffeta. She loved that dress and my Dad loved her in it. It was his favorite dress of hers. Awh ~ thanks for the memories.

    Yeah, it's seems to be an obsession with many, so you wouldn't be alone. I'm undecided if I'm going to dive into the series. I'm obsessed enough with the clothing. The fabric! 100% cotton from Wineberry Fabrics! Yes, a quilting store, but these excellent quality cottons are fabulous to sew! They don't fray like their inexpensive cousins.

    Yes, Betty does seem to have some issues, not the least a husband, or ex-husband, that can't seem to be monogamous. I'm okay with Sam stealing the show. It's not often that he wants to get in on the photo shoot…which is probably easily explained by the fact that I often take photos away from home, LOL.

And yes, thrifted treasures are still the best buy, dollar for dollar, but I am enjoying the creative aspect of sewing some of my own clothes.
