Vintage Belle Stitches McCalls 9604 Summer 2014
1960’s Vintage Coat Dress for Summer
Vintage Belle stitches McCalls 9604, coat dress summer 2014, this gorgeous dress features bound buttonholes and finished Hong Kong seams. I too am working on a few vintage summer McCalls patterns–I really do need to share; I finished a bra and two maxi dresses. I’m also working on a back button over-blouse in a primitive print and finished the back opening with the beautiful Hong Kong finish and now I need to complete my buttonholes. The highlight of my summer is the red vintage print and the brocade for my granddaughter’s graduation.
Watch for pictures to be added to this post. I love vintage! By the way, your bound buttonholes are perfectly beautiful.
I simply adore this pattern–

I plan to hand-finish the buttonholes because I think that method will hold up better on the burlap. You can see a picture here:
