1960’s McCall’s 6020

This was my first attempt working with vintage patterns using a McCall’s 6020 pattern. It worked out pretty good, easier then I thought. Though this is a muslin version from a scrap fabric, it’s nice enough to wear because I made it as I would make it with a more expensive fabric. Next time I will pick one size smaller if I use a 60’s pattern, I’d like it to be a bit more fitted in the waist. It has a lovely draped tied collar in the front and a left side seam blind zipper.

  • It’s beautiful! Love the tied collar, so elegant!
    From what I can see here, you might be right about getting one size smaller next time, both for the waist and for the shoulders. That may lead to a FBA though… Anyway, this doesn’t look like a muslin, this looks like a blouse =)

  • that tied collar is so classy, and looks great on you! the shoulders do look like they fit, although maybe if you don’t want it to blouse at the waist you would taper in…

    I think a size smaller would be good. For that true 60s look, the shoulder should be a bit more narrow, so the sleeve cap sits a bit higher and the armscythe is a bit tighter.
