As I ponder what the heck I should do with my template (although it doesn’t look half so eye-pokingly bad when not viewed on Fenton’s laptop screen), I’ll share part of my old banner – taken from a vintage McCalls dress pattern cover…
Yes that’s right, if you’re fat – this dress is not for you. Apparently there are a ton of vintage patterns out there labelled in this manner!
For a long time I thought that McCalls was the only politically incorrect pattern-maker out there, but oh how wrong I was!!
Simplicity were in on the act too – as I found out 5 minutes ago when I picked up a vintage pattern (circa 1966) I purchased on Thursday (not that I have actually used a pattern to sew with in the last 12 years) …
Girls’ and Chubbies’ ???????
And Look! They’ve used some of the cast of Village of the Damned as models!
1who knew that McCalls owned them both now?? I’ve been out of the sewing loop for way too long.
