Mad Men Inspired Dress: Simplicity 2955

At the end of last month, I posted my most recent photo shoot with Casa Noir Photography. You can see the pictures here.

The dress I wore was one I made over a year ago, but just never wore it. I've been wearing it a lot lately since I have to wear all black to work. My only regret is not making the matching bolero and cummerbund. One day! 

I used Simplicity 2955 from 1955 and used a linen mix for the fabric. I love the feel of the fabric, but it does wrinkle a lot! 

Here's the best picture of the finished dress.

Until next time!
