What’s better than a vintage dress sewing pattern? How about one created by McCall’s and famed designer Mollie Parnis?! She dressed many First Ladies, from Mamie Eisenhower in the 50s all the way to Rosalynn Carter in the 70s. This lovely 70’s dress pattern features special details that make it next level: “Underline dress, with short set-in sleeves, has princess seaming in front and back and center back zipper. Dress is also lined above waistline. Upper front is sewn to forward shoulder extensions of backs and lower front is sewn above waistline to upper front. Pockets, of dress and lining fabric, are included in front seams. Bias band collar is sewn to neck edge of dress and lining. Dress, worn with belt, has stitched fronts and buttonholes in horizontal front seam. Contrast fabric belt has button molds covered with belt fabric. Belt, buttoned to dress front, is drawn thru openings in dress front seams and hooked closed in back over zipper. Dress is interlaced where necessary.”
