This project was taken from a 1966 McCall’s pattern, found at a huge second-hand warehouse.
The materials called for cotton, tricot and webbed interfacing, now replaced with a Lycra lining and muslin facing. I still made the body out of pre-washed 100% cotton, but today there are many options. And the zipper is from a second-hand store, too.
Such a great representation of a classic design!
