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!

    Kimono sleeves I believe. 🙂

    Very nicely done!

    As always, very lovely and very weel done as all the dresses you do.

    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! 🙂

    Such an adorable dress – polka dots are my fave!

    I bet you feel pretty when you wear it!

    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!
