After this Sunday's (or Tuesday's in the UK) epic edition of the world's favorite Sixties drama, it's a whole new Mad Men world. What's new? Well - spoiler alert - it's now 1966, and, well, a lot has changed.
There's so much goss - we now know who Peggy's beau-of-longest-standing is, we got to see Joan in her glasses (love that!), the Sterlings aren't really getting on (at all), and lowly secretary Megan has decisively eclipsed all other potential Don-nettes. She's got the hair, the wardrobe, and a bit of ambition. His kids even like her! Finally, Don has someone fun and cool to kick back with (though I'm still pining for Dr. Faye). Now, the rest of us just need to catch up.
To aid you in your quest for Mad Men-inspired fabulousness, I've done a bit of homework on the newest Mad Men year, 1966. After all, when it comes to vintage craft it helps to assemble a mood board of particular looks you want to evoke with your finished garment or object.
Whether you want to rock a vintage hairdo, tweak a modern pattern to mimic a style of decades before, or just have fun working some classic typography into your newest letterpress design, we've got the Mad Men flavor to add to your crafty stew.
Enjoy ... and please share your vintage craft ideas - and Mad Men goss! - in the comments.
