MadMen Fashion

SoundStitches MadMen blouse

I was thrilled to hear that the 2011 fashion forecast includes higher necklines. It seems to me that many women are flattered by having fabric up near their faces. Although it’s 1965 vintage, I love this classic blouse on MadMen character Faye Miller. Bows also made an appearance in the 1980s. The style would be easy to make. On a quick pass of the major standard pattern companies, I didn’t find a likely pattern match (but I have an older Simplicity button-down blouse pattern with a bow). Faye’s MadMen blouse is silk, and you’d want to pick a fairly substantial silk. Polyester charmeuse would also work.
