Old-ish Costume Patterns

October 30, 2012

I went through my patterns the other day and collected all of my vintage-ish patterns in one blog post. ¬†Most are from the 1970’s and 1980’s, but then there’s this fabulous Chiquita Banana Girl Costume that was part of a mail order pattern…and it’s numbered as McCall’s 101. ¬†Does anyone have any idea when this would have been in circulation?


  1. I agree, late 60s or early 70s. The return address has a zip code which dates it after 1963 and probably after 1967 but the use of Mass. instead of MA suggests that it is probably pretty soon thereafter. Plus the graphics fit that era too.
