1960's Sewing Giveaway!



It's Time for Another Pattern Patter Team


Giveaway!
With the holidays over and life starting to settle into a "normal routine", It's time for a new giveaway! This time it's the 1960's! Now the image most of us get when we think of the sixties is mod mini dresses and teeny bikinis. The sixties didn't start out that way. This grouping of sewing patterns, fabrics, and notions is from the early 1960's. Slim skirts, cropped jackets, beautiful hats and long gloves were the dress of the day! 

There are NINE - 9 patterns in this amazing lot! Starting at the top left, McCall's 6564 Size 18, McCall's 6079 Size 14, McCall's 7837 Size 11, Simplicity 4880 Size 14, Simplicity 8597 Euro Size 48 , Butterick 2308 Size 10, Vogue 5860 Size 12, LeRoy 656 Size 16, Vogue 4991 Size 12

To go with these lovely patterns, we have some great fabrics. While all of the fabrics are vintage, they may not be from the 1960's. 

First I need to show you this great find. Vogue 4991 is almost done! It comes with it's fabric covered buttons too. A weekend and this dress is done! 

The fabric feels like a nice fine lightweight wool. The Blackwatch look plaid is teamed up with a two tone wide waist. 




Starting top left, The yellow floral by Steihl, is a "crepey" fabric with a very nice drape. It's 44" wide and  3 3/4 yards long. , Next is the almost completed dress. There are a few smaller pieces included. The white with watercolor roses, is a textured mid weight cotton or cotton blend. It would make a nice day dress. It's 40" wide and 3 1/4 yards long plus approximately 1 yard 20" wide. The bright floral is a slinky knit. It would make a great cowl top. It is 54" wide, 2 yards in length. 

As for notions, there are belt buckles, buttons, needle books, Zipper, elastics, and more! 

To enter, see below! Good Luck! The winner will be chosen at random on January 23rd.

  6. Here is one thing I remember about clothes from the 60's We had paper dresses. Yep dresses made out of paper but didn't feel stiff. Were nice and soft. Of course they didn't last long. Also had what was called 3 arm holed dresses. Kind of like a wrap dress or hospital gown now.Guess that is where the hospital gowns came from. I love all the old dress patterns myself. Wish we could go back and wear. The women looked so beautiful and all in them. I was a child and thought they were grand ladies with the jewelry , high heels and dresses, of yes and the girdles too. Remember those?.
