Peace, Love and Finally some New New Vinatge
Mc Calls 9658 from 1969. A year after our summer of love but close enough for me. This one is a "Time Saving Quickie"..
It says so right on the envelope. Sounds a bit risque to me.
It was easy to make. No fitting. I added a contrasting facings to amuse myself. It didn't need the zipper that was on the pattern and I put it in.. but I have worn it a few times and never used the zipper at all. I also shortened the sleeves, just for fun. I am experimenting with shapes and I like to see if I can make alterations work.
This looks like a circus tent or clown costume on the hanger.. But I think it looks pretty cute on... in an easy livin', sweetly psychedelic way.
Here's hoping all everyone's summers are full of love... Or at least a well timed folk song or two.
