Finally, a FO post. I hadn’t expected to wear this dress until Spring, but it’s warm enough to wear a short-sleeved, cotton dress with no stockings. This weather is killing me! I also finished a flannel Macaron, but it hasn’t been cold enough to wear it. On to the deets!
McCall’s 6139 is from 1961 and is a good example of the differences between 1950’s fashions and early 1960s fashion. It has the slightly raised waist and short skirt that signal the 60’s, but the cut-on sleeve that was in style in the 50’s. I love these transitional styles!
This dress is made in a cotton twill from my stash. I’m not sure the high neckline works in in this dress but I like everything else about this dress.
