March 21, 2014Vintage Sewing eBay Roundup – Ladies of Mad Men Edition
I gotta admit, as excited as I am that Mad Men will be back in April, I am a bit sad that this is to be the final season. What am I going to watch??? It’s speculated that this season will take place in 1969 (which really, would make sense for a show about the 60’s!), so lets have some fun imagining what the ladies might have worn, shall we?
First up, this: Vintage 1969 Butterick 5209 Misses' Coat Dress Pattern
This is my pick for Peggy. Very no-nonsense, very practical. As much as I’d like to see her in view A, I am guessing she’d probably pick view C’s brown shade.
Next, we have this VINTAGE 1969 McCalls Pattern #9783
The long pantdress totally screams out Megan Draper, no?
Here, we have this VINTAGE 1969 SIMPLICITY MISSES SHIRT-DRESS & TIE SEWING PATTERN
This is my pick for Betty (Draper) Francis. She does love her shirtdresses – and this is definitely the version of the shirtdress for 1969!
Then, we have this Vtg Misses A-line Dress Dropped Waist Retro VOGUE Sew Pattern
I had to feature this one as I love the Vogue designer patterns – that being said, I could definitely see Peggy sporting something similar to the blue checked version, I think!
And finally, we have this Vintage 1969 Simplicity 8159 JIFFY DRESS
I had a really hard time making my pick for Joan! She has loved her wiggle dresses all throughout the series, but this is a look that just isn’t big at all in 1969! I am thinking maybe she might move to something along the lines of a very fitted version of this dress? She was definitely a difficult one to make a pick for, so I can’t wait to see what she’s wearing this season come premiere time!
Have a great weekend, everybody!
