...and speaking of 70s takes on 30s/40s fashions

Q: What vintage is this dress?

I know! I know!
It was homemade from McCall's pattern number 4405, dating from the mid 1970s, but it has all sorts of 40s detailing. I was lucky to have had the pattern for sale recently, and when I found the homemade dress I recognized it immediately.

[Gotta love those Farrah Fawcett faces on pattern envelopes of the era!]

BTW, the dress is currently for sale on eBay.

So pretty. I wish I looked better in dresses--they are such fun to wear.

I made most of my clothes in the 70s, and I always looked for patterns like this one. I truly loved the 40s influences. It wasn't too much longer that I discovered the real thing and became hooked on vintage!
