Scraps From the Past - 1960s Geometric
From time to time, a seamstress leaves inside the envelope a piece or two of the fabric she used to sew the pattern. It is always fun to see what fabric inspired someone decades ago. From 1964, McCall's 7641 offered two sleeveless dresses - a slim chemise and a lovely A-line.
Tucked inside were two pieces of fabric,which the seamstress chose to sew the A-line dress. The fabric is a shimmery knit polyester, in an abstract pattern of purple, pink, baby blue, and a goldish-tan.
