McCalls Vintage 1961 Sewing Pattern Misses Dress with Slim or Full Skirt #5885 Bust 38


Very nice vintage 1961 sewing pattern #5885 by McCalls. This pattern makes two views – sleeveless, fitted bodice with a full skirt or a short sleeved wiggle dress with a slim skirt. Both views have a wide, boat neck.

All pieces are present, some are in factory folds.

There are 2 instruction pages included.

Measurements: Envelope states Size 18. This is VINTAGE size 18 and not the same as modern sizes. Please view the photo with the envelope back to determine sizing.

  • Bust: 38”
  • Waist: 30”
  • Hips: 40”
  • Back Waist Length: 16 ¾”

Label / Brand: McCalls

Condition: Good. View A pattern pieces have been cut and used. The View A skirt may have been shortened at the bottom, and it has been shortened with a fold in the proper location and pinned. I left this intact. Most of the View B pieces are uncut and unused. The bodice front piece is used in both views and it has been cut and used. Some musty odor is detected. Envelope is lightly age darkened with some foxing. One edge is split about 2-3” and the other has torn about an inch into the front side. Retains the flap.

I don’t clean up the photos/scans of my pattern envelopes so you don’t get any surprises when it arrives! All patterns are packaged in plastic to arrive safely to you.

This is a true original vintage sewing pattern – NOT A COPY! We remove all pattern pieces from the envelope and count to make certain that all pieces are either included or that we tell you which pieces are missing. Where patterns are uncut (unused) this means that we have carefully unfolded the pattern, so you may note the disturbance in the factory folding.

Vintage patterns are sold as is and all sales are final. The sad truth is that patterns are very easily copied and tissue paper is somewhat fragile. We thoroughly check the patterns for completeness prior to your purchase and again prior to shipping so you may be assured that what is described is what you will receive!
