Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have seen my latest find, vintage Marion magazines from 1961 that include some patterns that can be traced (most had to be ordered though, which of course is not possible anymore). They are so cool and so Mad Men!
I was drawn to this dress on the cover of the April number, and surprisingly enough, the pattern for size 36 was on the radar sheet. There were only three pattern pieces so the tracing was quite straightforward, although finding the folds and darts was a bit hard.
With my Anthro necklace it does look like I actually bought the dress there doesn't it?
BTW: I watched all episodes of The Great British Sewing Bee while sewing and after a while I could just hear Claudia Winkleman tell the viewer "Anne is making a dress from the 1960s and is having trouble with her topstitching...." HA!
