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–

By the way, your bound buttonholes are perfectly beautiful.

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:

Most of my sewing is done during the spring and summer. I like the dresses and styles more, and I have more free time due to school breaks. It is hot for so much of the year in New Orleans, so I get … Molly’s sewing space. What is your dream sewing project? Making my vintage coat pattern, Vogue 877. I am partly finished and it will be my masterpiece when I done! It is cut out and I basted the underlining. Maybe I’ll finish it before next winter… How long have you been a member of BurdaStyle?
