I love Joan from Mad Men

8 comments

Have I ever told you how much I adore Joan from Mad Men? I think she's a classy lady, for the most part, and I love her style (who doesn't?). I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her and my husband was kind enough to get me her signature pen necklace, so I can pretend to be more like her than I actually am. Stalker?

An upcoming Sew Weekly challenge is going to be a Mad Men theme. I was very excited because I had bought some fabric that screamed "Joan" to me before knowing about the challenge... but I keep looking at it and second guessing myself. Do you think this is a "Joan" color? I need your opinions!


If you guys approve of this fabric then I am going to use it for a dress. Which dress? I don't know :( I need to figure out which pattern to use and find some time to get this done! I picture myself wearing my Mad Men dress, drinking Old Fashioned cocktails, and watching the new episodes. Man Men party?

  4. Joan is one of my personal style icons as well. As she wears a lot of rich jewel-tone kinda colors, I say yes! yes! yes! to this fabric.

  6. That's Joanie all the way! Get stitching!!! As a curvy gal, I can't help but love her. Thing is, I'd better start on my Mad Men challenge stat, otherwise it will never get done in time.
