Betty or Joan

Betty and Joan have their unique style and both styles suit their body types and life. For Julia Bobbin’s Mad Men Challenge I had my foot in both camps. Double trouble, this is my take on The Monthly Stitch’s Sewing double theme.

Using my block patterns I trialed a Joan-based work style with a stretch woven that Mel gave away at the Sydney Spoolettes swap.

These photos were taken by a Mad Men fan. Thanks Kylie!



Here’s the ‘scoot and run’ shot before work:)

Then I tried a Betty inspired evening dress.

Here’s my dress block version with a smile.
But I loved the pic below
So I did a double take.

The fabric is a silver lace mesh and interlined is with chiffon.


Here’s my Joan choice.

I have the print fabric…for another day.

Have fun sewing everyone! And take a look at Julia’s blog for the wrap up! There are so many great entries. Love your work Julia.
