Item details

1968 - That pivotal year! The My Lai massacre took place in March, and Jackie K. married Aristotle O. in October. The Prague Spring brought tanks into Wenceslas Square, students rioted in Paris, Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis, the Planet of the Apes debuted on the big screen and Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In debuted on the small screen.

The world was shifting, and the Woodstock Festival was only a year away.

This pattern, dated 1968, still reflects the pretty, sweet and innocent style that would crumble away as hippies, the women's movement, and the era of 'free love' would set the world on its collective ear! But for one last summer, necklines were still modest, navels still covered and unpierced, hemlines still long.

McCalls gave it all to you in this pattern - everything you'd need for your summer vacation! A cute, ankle length beach cover up (trimmed with bobble fringe, no less!), the two piece bathing suit, a play suit with trousers, and a pretty tailored sleeveless shift dress to wear on your dinner dates.

Note that the swimsuit pattern is created for non-stretch (non knit) fabrics. I would say that you could probably make it up nicely in some of the woven, one-way stretch fabrics available now, too.

The pattern has been partially used, but all pieces are included and intact. It is very clean, and even the envelope is in fairly good condition, with only a bit of discoloration and some minor damage up near the flap.

The size is listed as 16.
Measurements listed are:
Bust 36"
Waist 28"
Hip 38"

This pattern is coming from a smoke-free and pet-free home. However, it has been acquired from another household, and does have faint, musty-paper scent.

Note that I am offering this as a pre-owned, vintage item in 'as-is' condition. Please feel free to ask questions before you purchase.

I will ship to most countries, but if you're not certain please feel free to contact me before you purchase. Unfortunately, insurance through the US Postal System is not available except at the most expensive shipping rates for mailing internationally.

If my shipping cost estimate was over the actual cost by more than $2.00, I will refund the overage to you.

I'm happy to combine shipping for items if you purchase them at the same time.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My items are sold 'as is', in vintage, pre-owned and / or used condition. I try to describe any problems that I find, and I will only refund if I have grossly misrepresented the condition or size of an item. In this situation, I will refund only after the item has been returned to me (and received) in the condition that it was shipped in.

Etsy policy requires that Sellers be responsible for refunds due to shipping loss or damage. Given this reality, I am adding appropriate insurance to all shipping prices in order to protect both of us. For Priority Mailing, this would mean any item valued over $50 US. (As I am selling unique items, I'm not able to offer an identical or similar replacement, obviously.)

In the rare case that your parcel arrives damaged, or the item has been damaged in transit, you MUST take photos of the damage and upload them for me ASAP, in order for me to file an insurance claim. I'm sorry, but no photos = no refunds.

Additional policies

If you are purchasing with a deadline in mind, please check with me first to be sure that I can accommodate your needs. It will save disappointment on both of our sides. (For instance, holiday or birthday gifts, film shoot, rehearsal needs, etc.)
