Mccall 6006 – 1945

April 30, 2012


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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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! 🙂
