This is a spring dress I made from McCall’s 9037, a wrap dress pattern from 1984 inspired by Joan Collins in “Dynasty.” (It was part of the McCall’s “Dynasty” collection designed by Nolan Miller.)
Everything that could be gathered IS gathered: the bodice, the shoulders, the cap sleeves, the waist, the cuffs, and the skirt. This is the secret to Eighties style, it seems!
More about this on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness: www.malepatternboldness.blogspot.com
There’s also a slideshow of my photoshoot at http://picasaweb.google.com/PeterLappinNYC/CathyModelsTheJoanCollinsDress#
It’s a lot of fun!
I made this out of a vintage Eighties Ralph Lauren flat sheet! 100% cotton.
Featuring great prizes and the Magic Pattern Book.
