Mad Men dress

Butterick 6582B

Butterick 6582B back

I have been watching a lot of the AMC show Mad Men lately.  So many beautiful clothes.  Sigh.

This dress is from the same pattern as the Ballet dress shown in the last post.  I altered it to get the asymmetric neck line.  I also lowered the point at the back to just above the bra strap, which makes it a little sexier, and reshaped the darts to fit a little closer to the body.  The dress is cut to fall almost straight from the hip, I took it in by several inches at each side to get that tapered, slightly Morticia Adams look.  I LOVE wearing this dress. 

Pattern: Butterick 6582
Fabric: fake dupioni
