We adore the classic silhouette of a slim sheath dress, and this vintage sewing pattern offers two very pretty necklines: a demure bateau, and a flattering scoop neckline.
This is a McCalls pattern, numbered 5045, and dated 1959.
There are 16 pieces, all are present. Some are cut, some are not. The instructions are included.
The envelope is in remarkable condition. The graphics are a delight, in a red and black colorway.
Sleeveless sheath dress with bateau neck, or scoop neck jumper and blouse Dress and jumper are dart fitted, have center back zipper closing, and low pleat. Fitted blouse, with front neck opening, may have flat collar or bow tied standing collar Set-in sleeves may be short or three-quarter length. Three-quarter sleeves gathered into buttoned sleevebands.
This is sized as a Juniors 13, which in 1959 was a 33" bust; the waist is 25.5", the hips 35". If you know how to grade patterns, this can easily be adjusted to fit a larger size.
This is an authentic, original pattern, not a copy.
