Giveaway: McCall's 6147 Sundress and Matching Jacket Pattern

It's time for a vintage sewing pattern giveaway!

Have you been thinking about your spring and summer wardrobe?
Why not sew up this little number from 1961?

This is McCall's 6147:

Cute, no? It's very Betty Draper-esque from earlier Mad Men episodes.

Now for the details: the envelope on  my actual copy is a little worse for wear so I didn't picture it, but the tissue is in great condition. Bust size is 33 inches.

If you're interested just leave a nice comment by Friday, April 20th.  One comment per person. Be sure to leave an email address or point me to your blog so I can contact you.   I'll choose a winner by random number and announce the winner on the 21st.

Good luck!


  1. Yes, cute! Thanks for the giveaway Collette! xo

  2. How darling! I love the bias waistband. Count me in!

  3. I love it - full skirts are so fun to wear. I think I would make it in a seersucker plaid as shown.
    thanks for the giveaway, Beth

  4. My girlfriend's daughter just loves this era of clothing. I would love to make it for her to wear to high school. She would turn every head for sure.

  5. i am really just getting into Vintage I really think that this would be a great start to my pattern collection and also a great start to sewing my own clothes. Love your blog.

  6. The pattern is adorable!! Wish I could squish into it! You are so sweet to have give-aways!

    (Please leave my name out of this one.)

  7. Oh my gah, Oh my gah Oh my gah! I would die for this pattern. But who shall I get to sew it??? Well I will cross that bridge when I win this pattern! hahaha

  8. I swear my sister had this same dress! I love it! Such memories!

  9. What a lovely wee blog to stumble upon!! I would love a chance to win this ace vinage pattern... I even know what fabric I would use!! :)

  10. It is so wonderfully evocative of the first couple of Mad Men seasons, I agree. I generally say that my personal preference in vintage fashions (that I'd want to wear, I mean) drops off dramatically after 1960, but I've always made an exception to that statement with the ultra feminine dress styles that continued on for the first three or four years of the 60s, and so would definitely make and wear frocks from this fantastic pattern.

    Thank you very much, sweet friend, for your wonderfully nice comment on my vintage outfit post this week, I really appreciate it.

    Oodles of hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  11. Oh, what a lovely pattern! Love the combination of the empire waist and the flared skirt - quite unique. :-)

  12. I'll be honest. I'm mostly here for the give away since it would be the perfect gateway to get into making vintage dresses. However your blog is absolutely adorable and right up my alley. I think I'll stick around!

  13. I noticed the little detail on the pattern "this may also be used as a regular pattern" as opposed to what?
    Very Betty draper indeed, thanks for the giveaway.
