Vintage Sewing Pattern for Dress, Jumpsuit and Jacket - McCall's 9625 - Bust 32.5 - from the 1960s
From the line of "Dressmaker Tested" McCall's patterns, this pattern is the ultimate in versatility. Using only this pattern, one could create an entire wardrobe of clothes for day and evening. View A is a very on-trend jumpsuit. In a printed silk, it can go out for a special evening. In a cotton, linen, crepe or pique in solid colors, it could easily go to work. To increase your work wardrobe, you could make the jacket to go over the jumpsuit, as in view B. View C is a cute dress with a modern jewel neckline and a cute shorter length. The shorter length is great for parties or going out to dinner, and if you are creatively inspired, you could lengthen it to create a version to wear to work.
Please note that the jacket is identified by the pattern as a "tunic"; however, if made up in a pique, for example, it would be more like a lightweight, unlined jacket.
From the pattern envelope: McCall's 9625, Copyright 1969, Misses' Dress or Tunic and Jumpsuit: Sleeveless jumpsuit with long, wide legs and front buttoned dress or tunic. All garments are fitted by French darts in front and vertical darts in back. Jumpsuit has center back zipper, faced armholes and faced neck, V-shaped in front. Tunic has long set-in sleeves and may be worn with buckled self fabric belt. Mini length dress has faced armholes. Dress and tunic have faced and interfaced neck and interfaced front edges.
The front of the envelope indicates that this is one of "McCall's time saving Quickie patterns".
size: 10 bust: 32.5 waist: 24 hip: 34.5
There are 15 total pattern pieces.
Also enclosed is an advertisement for a "mini-coat" that shows addresses of Ralph's California stores at the time. On the flip side is a brief note on "how to make jumpsuits fit." Please note that this pattern is completely unrelated to the mini-coat and does not include instructions to make it.
condition: This pattern would be worth more, due to the inclusion of the "mini-coat" advertisement; however, it is being sold at a reduced price, due to flaws in its condition. Tissue shows wear and tear, and piece 3 was torn into two pieces. Envelope shows significant wear and tear, especially where the front meets the envelope flap; there is a piece of tape beside a significant tear in this area. Colored graphics remain sharp. Instructions have yellowed with age, but are otherwise in good condition. It appears that only the pieces associated with the jumpsuit (view A) were used. These pieces were lengthened/shortened in a careful way that could easily be reversed. The price has been lowered to compensate for this inconvenience. Please see all photos.
