Patterns From The Past: McCall's 8245 A Dress In Six Versions
Today's featured pattern is McCall's # 8245, as seen here in this vintage ad from one of my Seventeen magazines:
Four versions are shown on the pattern front:
As you can see, the version on the model in the ad is the one on the right, with the bow on the sash tied in the back, rather than in the front, and made with the two "wild orange and yellow" contrasting fabrics in stripes and polka dots.
Some of the styles are also illustrated on the back side of the pattern:
I think my favorite may be the black and white gingham with the eyelet trimming the sleeves. But I want the pockets, too.
What about you?
How would you make yours?
