It's no secret that Joan from Mad Men is my favorite character on the show. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to her and the cast! So when I saw the image below I knew that I wanted to make my Licorice dress look similar to hers.
Tabatha's. Then when I was finished I tried it on and my opinion suddenly changed on the color. I am happy with the fit and I don't know what happened, but I like the colors now. My mind is all over the place!
Snippets? A recent tip was very helpful and I used it on this dress. It suggested that when you need to turn under a raw edge 1/4 inch to press (for the hem) do a line of basting stitches first, so you will know exactly where to turn it. Genius!
