Description

This dress was made using a vintage McCall’s pattern from the 1950s, No. 5479. The pattern itself was a size too large, and required extensive alterations to achieve perfect fit. It has bound buttonholes, full lining, covered buttons, and a side handpicked lapped zipper. The fabric was a loosely woven blend, but I really am not exactly sure what it is.
