Vintage pattern giveaway - 1967 dress and 1964 skirt

Vintage patterns 1960s

So, is anyone interested in these two vintage patterns from 1960s? Just leave me a comment - but not just any comment - tell me what you're sewing right now.

If there's more than one of you interested I'll draw a number and post it on Wednesday evening. You won't be hearing from me tomorrow as hubby and I have plans.

The one on the left is Simplicity 7129, a "Simple-to-Sew" Jiffy dress pattern from 1967 in a size 16, bust 36. The a-line dress with back zipper and collar has slightly lowered round neckline in front tapering to a "V" neckline in back. V. 1 has short set-in sleeves. Sleeveless V. 2 has tie collar. It has been cut and I checked - all the pieces are there.

The one on the right is McCall's 7469, a 1964 skirt pattern in a size waist 30, hip 40. The three-piece, lightly flared skirt is wrapped and buttoned at front. Right front and waistband are interfaced. Right front of three-piece slim skirt is faced with contrast fabric, lapped over left front and stitched leaving vent at lower edge. Skirt has interfaced waistband, left side zipper. Back of six-piece flared skirt is faced with contrast fabric, lapped over right side back and stitched leaving vent at lower edge. Skirt has interfaced waistband, left side zipper. This also has been cut, but I didn't check the completeness. The word "complete" is written on the backside in pencil so I'm assuming a previous owner checked that all of the pieces are included.

So why am I giving these away? Because I want to. They're destined for either my Etsy shop or Pattern Rescue so if you're interested I'll just ship them to you. Pin It


  1. oh my goodness. i think that simplicity pattern is my mom's wedding dress!!!! the collar and back neck look the same.

    as for sewing, until gustov takes my power, it's football season, so i'm making lots of jon-jons and jumpers with baby mascots. i would rather they all be purple and gold, but it seems some of my friends are alabama fans. i just don't get it...

  2. Ah, Retro patterns!!! My favorite!!! I am currently finishing up Butterick 5209, a Retro '47 remake dress, but nothing beats the real thing when it comes to Retro patterns! Mary

  3. Love the 67 dress, that's the year I was born, so I see pictures of mom & aunts wearing similar things. Size is close enough, too. I have taken a break from a wrap top and skirt and working on a dresden plate quilt top for a lady in town that she wants to handquilt.

  4. Sixties' dresses are the best! My current project is #108 from WOF 5/06 -the penultimate summer pants for this year. One more pair are cut, and I want to start Fall sewing with no warm weather leftovers this year.

  5. Love the '67 dress. I am currently working on a apron and some ponchos for my nieces.

  6. I am interested!! I don't own any vintage patterns and these are great! Right now at this moment, I just finished a shirt and I am starting on knit shirt/dress - it is a McCalls pattern by Hilary Duff!

  7. i love the dress! it would be a perfect getaway dress for my vintage-y wedding

    what i am sewing right clothes for me and my hubbie-to be. everything is muslined, now i have to be brave and cut the "real" fabric. and i better get brave soon because the wedding is in mid-october!

  8. Well, I am going to be honest with you. I haven't sewn a thing in a while. I think my mojo is on hiatus, so I visit a few of my fav sewing blogs for some inspiration. Many ideas bouncing around in my head, though. Colour blocking, deep purples, rich reds, et al. Mmmm, yummy! The ideas I have for fall. I've got a wedding to attend next weekend so I better get cracking!!
