Mad Men Dress Challenge

So while I wasn't sure if I was actually going to enter Julia Bobbins Mad Men Dress Challenge, seeing as I never completed it last year. But I seem to be on quite a roll with Colette's Laurel pattern. I have it fitting pretty well at this point. It just so happens that it's the perfect pattern for MANY of Megan Draper's Dresses. The one I plan on copying is this one, featured in the season five premiere of the show. 

I plan on leaving the sleeves off of the dress version of the pattern, and binding with orange bias tape. You can kind of see a hint of the lining/blinding on the side view in the circled image above. I am a bit worries about the orange strips and collar though.  Maybe I can use some extra wide bias tape for both? I'm going to head to Joann's and see what I can find fabric wise. If I can get a good deal on some linen I'd love to use that.
