I thought I would post some inspiration pictures for the Madmen Challenge hosted by Julia Bobbin.
The moment I read about it on her blog, I got so excited I just jumped around and did a crazy dance in front of my laptop. Fortunately, I was alone and I was able keep my craziness a secret a little bit longer.
But come on! A Madmen Challenge! This is like Julia read into my mind (and from what I saw, from a lot of other seamstresses' mind) and made me a special gift.
After this moment of craziness, I went on the internet to search for Madmen pictures. My first intention was to make one of Peggy's outfit as she's my favourite character. But I didn't have any fabric to match this dress:
But I keep it in mind for a future project.
I love Joan's tight and overtly sexy dresses but I don't think it would look as good on me. I wish I could pull that look but I am more of a Peggy body type.
And of course, this dress worn by Betty is a favourite of mine:
After being on the hunt for a similar fabric, I resigned myself and kept looking for the perfect dress for this challenge. And I found it! I'll post both the inspiration and my own version as soon as I finish it.
I can't wait to see all the participants' interpretations...
