The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

Apr 17, 2024

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.

This full-skirted, poplin dress from J.Crew brings the 1950s into your wardrobe in a fun and unexpected way.  The dress comes in five colors, but the black is my favorite.  And the sizes run 00-24 and are all available for pre-order.

I would wear this dress with a heeled slingback and chain bracelets to work.  I would also wear it with a flat raffia sandal and hoop earring to brunch.  It’s a great dress for not-so-casual Friday or for a mid-week business lunch.  I adore it.

    Thanks for the moment of nostalgia, from someone who also spent a lot of childhood time in fabric stores browsing the pattern books.

  2. Jess says:

    Size down probably 2 sizes if you aren’t big in the chest. I am a pretty standard size 6 in JCrew and got this in a size 2

  3. Sandra Cox says:

    Would love to have this pattern.

  4. This dress can probably be found as a Vogue vintage pattern
