1955 McCall’s Sewing Pattern 3222



McCall’s 3222 date: 1955. View B Dress
Materials: 3 yards cotton, 3 yard lining fabric, 1 14” zipper
This pattern was lovely. It was quick, easy and fun to sew. I think two hours total.I might be currently obsessed with paisley.

I made some alterations.
In lieu of facing and interfacing pieces I elected to fully line the pattern. The lining on the circle skirt led to a quick hem with a clean finish. The interfacing was fused to the lining to stabilize the button front of the shirt waist.

The swap of facing for black lining led to interest on the button front. The black peeps out with an open top button.

I also took a modern shortcut: one step machine worked buttonholes. I found it to be a nice addition due to the everyday wear look I desired for this shirt dress. I love it, is a lovely modern day dress with a vintage twist.
