Marian Martin 9279: The Krazy Klown dress!!

by Archive from Blogger on August 27, 2011 · 3 comments

in 1950s

The pattern is  Marian Martin 9279 from the 50s. It has a yoke with gathers on the front and back, an a-line skirt, a collar and pointy cuffs and front button closure. 

 Other than shortening it to fit my shortness, I made no changes and it was easy to make.

 It is an unprinted mail order pattern, but it was easy to put together. I interfaced it with white muslin, which was smooth and hides the dots from the facings. The buttons are shiny red vintage plastic.

 More pictures on my blog, including a real clown. Hee hee.
