There's been a fair bit of sewing, knitting and crochet-learning going on in these parts, but I don't actually have anything finished to show you all yet! Ironically, March will end up being my most productive month of the year so far as I'm frantically sewing up enough Renfrews for Tilly's exciting One Week, One Pattern project and I'm also hoping to complete a Mad Men inspired dress for Julia Bobbin's awesome challenge.
In keeping with the Mad Men fever that's surmounted stitchers around the world, over the next few weeks I've decided to regale you with some style inspiration (basically my favourite looks) from the wonderful series – starting with some secondary characters and moving on to the better known ones. If I start clogging up your blog-readers and you'd rather I didn't continue with this style series, please do let me know!
I've already decided to make Jane Siegel/Sterling's dress for myself, but one of my absolute favourite style icons from the Mad Men series is Faye Miller. She stole my heart with her lovely hair, warm brown eyes, perfect make-up and elegant outfits. I also love that she's a successful professional and an independent woman!
Here are some of my favourite Faye Miller looks

Faye has the best selection of work blouses with lovely neck detailing
She's also got a great array of twin-sets
And Faye's elegant work and evening dresses need to make their way into my wardrobe soon!
If you've been sitting on the fence about Julia's Mad Men Dress Challenge, has this post given you any food for thought? I sure hope so!
What are you working on at the moment?
