Looking for a swap

January 31, 2012

Hi all! I have this lovely unmarked Advance 3664 undated pattern (I’m guessing early to mid 40s). The envelope has seen better days but the pieces and instructions are in good condition. In fact, I’m not sure anyone has even used this one before. I was hoping someone out in vintage land had this pattern or one very similar to it that wanted to swap. This beauty is too many sizes too big for me to want to mess with. It’s a size 18 (36 bust, 30 waist, and 39 hip). I was looking for a 30 bust, or a 32 at the biggest with the same wrap around style and one piece collar. Beggars can’t be choosers though. I’d mail anywhere in the US at my cost for someone to do the same. Thanks!

  1. I thought about it but it needs like 5 inches at least taken in the bodice and it would throw off everything. It’s a looser style dress so I know I would have to take it all the extra ease too. It’s just too much work for my liking.

  2. I have a copy of this pattern, for a 30″ bust:

    The collar is different, but it’s a wrap style and vaguely similar. . . Not sure if it’s similar enough. . .

    I know the envelope of my pattern is not in good condition, but I’m not sure about the contents.

    If you’re at all interested, I’ll pull it out and see if it’s complete, and take pics for you, so you can decide. Otherwise, I’ll be lazy and not bother, LOL! 😉
