Think Betty: Dinner with the Joneses… or drinks in the city with McCalls 4477

Today is the second “Betty Draper” inspired dress pattern (Mad Men tv series character for those who aren’t aware).

A modern "Betty" could make this vintage dress up for a day at the office (think jacket on top) and after work dining.

Hailing from 1958, McCalls 4477 reeks of elegance and style with a high, bloused bodice and v-neckline at the back. The length is demure. It doesn’t scream “siren” but it does exude a more subtle, refined charm that I think is in keeping with the Betty Draper character. Perfect for dinner with the Joneses. The black is classic but it could work in any number of prints…

A wonderful dress pattern for a modern “Betty”. Oh yes, its another on the wishful “to make” list!
