Round TWO!

  mmc27


I'm sure you've all noticed that Julia Bobbin has announced the second Mad Men Challenge. I was so excited to participate last year and am just as thrilled for round two. Last year I compiled a Pinterest board dedicated to inspiration for the challenge and I'm planning to start adding to it again as I gear up for my second version.

As you may recall, for the first challenge I made a green dress inspired by one Joan wore.



This year I'm thinking of going for something inspired by Megan, or at least something a little bit more mod. You know I love collars, and bows are pretty nice too...






If you're looking for more inspiration, take a peek at Julia's post revealing last year's participants' amazing makes.

Entries are due April 19, so you'll be seeing more inspiration and project planning updates from me as the due date approaches.

Get excited!!

  5. I wasn't able to participate last year, either so I'm so super excited for this year! I was thinking of channeling Megan, also. She's pretty much the epitome of what I love about the 60's. It's funny though because my very favorite thing she wore was a green sweater and cigarette pants. I'm trying to pull myself away from that outfit to choose a dress. Ha!

    1. That is my favorite outfit of hers too!!! I almost pinned it my inspiration board, but realized this isn't a dress, plus, I'm afraid of sewing pants and cannot knit yet. :-/

  8. I stumbled upon last year's challenge too late to join in and I was hoping to join this one, but I'm thinking I'm going to be too pregnant to do anything. I have inspirations and ideas for several of Joan's dresses but I can't picture myself making one that I'll be able to wear pregnant and afterward and I hate the idea of making something that cool and not being able to wear it without significant alterations in a year. I'd thought to do a maternity dress à la Betty during her pregnancy, but I'm not really inspired by any of those looks. *Sigh* Maybe I'll just have to wait again.
