60's Mad Men Era Classic Shirtwaist Dress Pattern Bust 34

Model: gt485


A perfect Betty dress.
Shirt style bodice has notched collar, set-in sleeves, front button closing. Skirt has soft pleats and a concealed opening at center front. Short cuffed sleeves or long sleeves gathered to button wristbands. Self fabric or purchased belt.
I haven't seen the Mad Men episode in a while, but I believe this dress in similar in style to the one that Betty was wearing in Season 4 after she went for a ride to meet Henry and then came home and told Don that she wanted a divorce. It was a grayish/green lightweight taffeta or silk fabric with a fantastic swish.
Vintage Simplicity sewing pattern 5040.
Size 14; Bust 34; Waist 26; Hip 36.
Uncut, complete and in original factory folds.
Undated early to mid 60's.
