Hold the phone!!!

Still don't have my laptop back yet, but was able to hop on the boyfriend's fancy computer for a minute to post this.

This morning, I nearly jumped out of my skin with delight and excitement. I happened to be perusing a few of my favorite blogs (everyone needs a tiny little mental break at work from time to time - shhh!), Miss Julia Bobbin's impressive and inspiring blog to be exact, and her recent Mad Men Challenge post. (Have you seen Julia's Peggy Dress?? - to die for!) So many of us love the show, not just as a compelling drama, but  for all of the amazing fashion inspiration too.

According to Julia, the gist of the challenge is this: Find a dress on Mad Men that you love and create your own version. 

My only question is this: HOW COULD I NOT DO THIS!?

That's it, I'm dropping everything! Violet, you're goin' on the back burner along with my mystery double knit project. They can just simmer until I'm done with my Mad Men Challenge! Deadline is March 30th. Get READY, y'all.

More soon re: dress inspiration and potential patterns. How EXCITING!!


  1. I saw this challenge too - it looks fantastic! Can't wait to see what everyone sews. I would join in myself, except I have too many other projects on the go at the moment!!
    Oh, and just to let you know, I passed on the Liebster Blog Award to you - check out my blog post on it! :)

    1. Thanks, Suzie!!! I've commented on your blog post, but feel the need to sing my thanks everywhere possible! You're awesome!!!

      (I'll have a full post ready for the Liebster Blog Award once I resolve my computer issues... :-/)


Thanks for leaving a comment!
