Mad Men inspired: Floor Length Robe

There is no shortage of sewing inspiration on one of my favorite shows, Mad Men.

This week I was dying to have Meghan Draper's robe. She is far and beyond my least favorite character. So problematic, and seemingly unneccesary to keep around. Not to mention it looks literally painful when she talks (what is UP with her teeth?).

However, she has probably the best wardrobe designer on the show.

So, yesterday during Ev's nap, I decided I'd do my modern take of her latest floor length robe. I omitted the frills, did full sleeves and went with a dark charcoal gray (mostly because my dad gave me an entire bolt of this very expensive fabric and I honestly don't know what to do with it. This project didn't even make a dent in it.)

Here's the inspiration:


Here is the end result:





It took me about 2 hours and I'm so happy with the end result. And the best part: it cost me nothing!


Hope you're all having a great hump-day!
