Mad Men Dresses-Late 60s

I made these dresses sometime last year and forgot about posting them, three are styled after the dresses worn by ''Megan'' and the last was a secretary i don't remember her name. All from the Tv show Mad Men.  All of these were made using vintage patterns that were close to the basic shape and then modified for each dresses specific details.

Empire waist Shift dress. Hounds-tooth non stretch woven fabric. double breasted with silver button front, short sleeves, Large fold down collar. Fully lined

 Teal stretch suiting fabric, also double breasted button front, shift with short sleeves, asymmetrical collar and chiffon scarf pin, also was fully lined, this time with a stretch satin.

This one is more of a full A-line with princess seams, printed bias binding and neck scarf, can be worn in a bow of just a knot with long ends, made using a stretch navy suiting and lined in stretch navy satin. back zipper, I was lucky to find a vintage cotton print that was similar to the same print used on the show

And finally a light blue stretch suiting wiggle dress with short sleeves and attached scarf collar, fitted bodice with pencil skirt. small gathers at the hip, back zipper, fully lined in stretch satin.
