Buy the Betty Dress sewing pattern from Sew Over It. Make yourself a beautiful 1950s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper! With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty nips you in at the waist then flares out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back. It has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.
