Mccall 6006 – 1945

Hiii!

This dress, made from Mccall’s 6006 (1945) has to be my favourite make so far! I am so so in love with 1940’s Mccall’s patterns – they’re just the best. What I love about this one is – the cool cap sleeves…If you could call them that. Maybe flutter sleeves? The tucks at the shoulder and back waist. The gathering on the front waist….The awesome gored skirt.

  • Love love love! Polka dots are up there with chocolate and coffee and wine…. some of my most favorite things! That’s color green is such a lovely color too.

  • Yep, love the dotted cotton, dress & pattern. Would also like to see your belt process. Got a couple ideas from your pattern for a few of my own blouses that aren’t quite so stylish. Thank you!

  • What a perfect fabric for the dress, if you hadn’t said you’d made it I would have thought it an original 40’s.
    A lovely dress!

  • Wow, the dress is beautiful, the fabric is perfect for the pattern. Whatever the sleeves are called, they are worth the effort of the hand-stiching, they are lovely! And I would love to see how you did the belt. Thank you for sharing! :)

  • I really love this dress! I usually sew 1950’s styles but lately find myself gravitating to 40’s patterns too. This fabric colour is perfect on you. LOVE your hair!
