Item details

This pretty pattern and fabric were in an old shoe box at a little antique shop that I frequent. The handwritten note on the blue lined paper says " I cut out this dress 50 years ago and never got it made". Although I don't sew, I like things with nostalgia and provenance so it had to come home with me.

The pattern is McCall's #4644, c. 1958 for a Helen Lee designed girls dress. The envelope says a size 6 and is in tatters. The instructions are complete but it has some tears and age discoloration.

Now for the interesting details :). There are suppose to be 12 pattern pieces in the envelope. There are 11 pattern pieces of the size 6, but there are another 12 pattern pieces of a size 8. Some of the size 8 pieces have the fabric already cut and some do not but there is enough of the fabric to finish it. So what you have is a complete pattern, fabric and instructions for the size 8 dress and an extra 11 paper pattern pieces of a size 6.

The zoom picture feature will give you a good close look, and of course, you can email me with any questions.
