McCall’s circa 1958.
Obviously (to me) this one is need a crinoline (that or a really tight girdle underneath), but it turned out not too bad in spite of the major altering job. Maybe I’ll just pad my hips to increase my waist to hip ratio.
So did women in the 50’s have way bigger boobs or something? Because this was a 36 bust and I measured mine and it’s definitely 36 but I had to take this in about 2 inches. Very frustrating what with the gussets under the arms and re-cutting the back neckline, you know what I’m talking about right?
I’m not sure if I like the yellow sash but it looks ok in the picture (Caroline I know you are jealous of my awesomely tanned legs) so maybe I’ll wear it to work tomorrow and if I don’t get any “wow Pam, that dress is really…something.” comments I’ll allow it in my closet.
Where can I get some little white gloves?
Btw: Dress #4 didn’t quite work out as I’d hoped (in case you were wondering).
something else from 1958.
