Item details

Looking for the perfect 1950s formal gown? Here it is, from How To Marry a Millionaire's wedding scene or any Grace Kelly movie. All are totally timeless!

McCall's #3028 A really beautiful classic 50s silhouette ballgown pattern, strapless with a built in off the shoulder collar and gored skirt. The envelope is a little beat but the dress is intact with instructions. No copyright date, so guessing mid 50s.
Size 14 1/2 (35" Bust).

Vogue Special Design #4540 A killer tulle ball gown with amazing wrap details at the top. Strapless or cap sleeves, long or ballet length. Copyright 1954.
*The envelope is so eroded and the pattern is un-printed so I have NO idea what size this is. It's for an advanced sewer, so if you can draft patterns and do grading this one's for you.

McCall's #4102 Grace Kelly by Day or Evening! 1950s shirtwaist dress with matching belt and big gathered skirt. The dress on the right has ruched trim detailing that would be a gorgeous wedding gown.
Size 14 (34" Bust).


*My advice for using vintage patterns: Carefully flatten out each piece on top of new paper and trace them. Store the old pattern. Use the new one. Sizing is different so make sure to measure and don't rely on size numbers.


FAQs

YOU the Buyer are responsible for making sure your address is correct in the Etsy system. Shipping issues on your end are your responsibility to correct. Any shipments returned to us for any reason will require additional postage to send again. Items damaged in transit are not eligible for refunds from the Pattern Jones Shop. Damages will have to be disputed with the US Post Office as we are not responsible for their handling or facilitating of your delivery.

Sizes are not all equal! Each era and pattern brand has a different size number system, so please check the measurements. ie: Just because it says 12 doesn't mean the same size as a 12 garment in a store today :)

We spent hours sorting all our patterns by ERA/DATE and TYPE. In some cases we have a pile of say, 60s little dresses so they're all together for you to choose from, just note the Pattern Company and # Number. Etsy will show us which one your ordered when we get the payment alert!

Order 3 or more patterns and get FREE Shipping within the USA! Code: 3SHIPFREEUSA Offer not valid on International Orders. *Otherwise No Haggling Please*

We spent HOURS checking all these envelopes! Please double check your pattern upon arrival and if there is a discrepancy we need to know about it within 3 business days. Otherwise we're going to assume you copied/used the pattern and are making a false claim. Sorry but that's how some people are, and PatternJones isn't a lending library.

Once upon a time in her other glamorous life, Pattern Jones needed to hoard all this stuff for Period Film Costume Production for TV, Film, and Broadway. SO! Some of these patterns were indeed used and some were not. Individual listings do not state which one, but if a dead-stock (unused) item is what you want please inquire with the listing link and pattern # and we will gladly double check before purchase.
