I just got this lovely ebay pattern in the mail. Its my favorite McCalls artist again! Usually the models have so much attitude, but this time all the ladies seem to be happy and enjoying each other's company. I am so in love with this person's illustrations. There must be some way to find out who painted these for McCalls! Any ideas...?
I am really interested in trying to make (and wear!) this kind of 60's dress. For some reason, everything that I think is cute right now, seems to have this shape. I am a little top (and bottom) heavy so I should probably stick to dresses that are fitted through the waist. This is not fitted. Not at all. It's a shift with a belt. But I don't care. Its got so much cuteness!
If I make it, I will use light and summery fabric so that, if looks awful as a day dress, I can use it as a swim cover up. That's thinking positive, right? It's nice to think about summer dresses and swimming. Today is the official start of Winter (the shortest day/longest night of the year) and it's cold as heck!
Note: In my ebay haste and blogging haste, I didn't realize that what I bought and blogged about was not a dress at all. This pattern is for separates including a top and skirt. Silly me.
