This is one of the most elusive of the 1970s patterns The Sewing Lawyer has been trying to recover. Woo Hoo!
I think I made it when I was in grade 12, from a light weight cotton which I remember having a very nice hand. I have a mental image of the print but trying to pin the image down enough to write about it is difficult. It had a smallish scale, I remember that, and the motifs were sort of irregularly round and irregularly concentric. The colours were quite bright; a clear blue, red and white, in that order of prominence. It sounds dreadful. It probably was.
After all the lying in wait for this one, strangely I'm content to have its digital image preserved and to know the pattern number. Even though I could buy it for only $3. In a size that has never been my size.
I could have sworn this dress was made from a McCalls pattern. But it was Butterick, my favorite brand of the day.
A few of my past favorites are still lost. But I'm on their trail.
