A wild Laurel in honor of Megan Draper

15 comments
TEAM MEGAN! I love Megan Draper! I am hesitant to say that because the writers for Mad Men could have her do something super shady this season, but as of April 7th, 2014 at 12:15 pm PST I am a Megan fan. She's a super rad chick with an awesome wardrobe, so when Julia announced another Mad Men sewing challenge I knew I was in and I knew what look I was going for.

I got this wild fabric from Mood Los Angeles around a year ago. Originally, I had planned on making an Edie Sedgwick inspired look with it and never got around to it. I do think this fabric can work for Edie or Megan though.

The sewing pattern is Laurel by Colette Patterns , one of my all time favorite patterns. It's so straightforward to sew and with the clean lines it is perfect for letting a wild print take center stage. It's actually the third version of the dress I have sewn (see version one and two), so I don't have anything new and exciting to write about it, but it's definitely one of my TNT patterns.

Megan would rock those cuffed sleeves, don't you think?

Much thanks to Melissa for taking all of these photos. She's seriously the most amazing friend ever. She sews with me, tolerates my extreme motion sickness, chats with me about blogging, and drives me to cool places for photo shoots. For this photo shoot we went on a quick trip to Guadalupe, the town where The Ten Commandments was filmed. I guess there are still movie props from the movie buried in the sand! I'd like to go back and have a look sometime... and maybe take some Dramamine before I get in the car.

Peace, love, and Megan Draper.
