McCalls Designer Collection.

McCalls do Designer !

I recently made some delicious vintage purchases on Ebay & Etsy.

I didn't realise McCalls did a fabulous 1960's classic fashion series.
Oh I want them all!

A glossy 126 page book on 1960's fashion by designers of the time..
The designer's included are Bill Blass, Mollie Parnis, Geoffrey Beene, Pauline Trigere, Givenchy and more.

So inspired was I that I found these two bargains on Etsy.
Truly, how could I resist?

I can't wait to make these patterns !


  1. Oh my - I love the clean lines of these 60s designs.

  2. Oh my God!!!! I´m green, green with envy!! No, it´s kidding ... You are very lucky and I really enjoy watching all those beautiful pictures of your finding.

  3. Catlin - yes the crisp lines are so delicious !
    Rosy - Thank you. Amazingly I was the only bidder on the book and it will be cherished.
