McCall’s 7345 – Toile

A muslin toile of McCall’s 7345, from the mid 1930’s.  As with the majority of vintage patterns, they were printed one size per envelope – so there is a lot of adjusting one has to do if your actor is larger or smaller than your pattern.  Here, the pattern was on the smaller end of the spectrum – so my actress was a good 8″ larger in the bust than the pattern.  It took a fair bit of grading to get it sized up correctly, but I think we’re looking good here!

There is SO much to love about this pattern – the bias-cut of the skirt, the little kick-pleats in the front and the back, the bow detail on the cute puff sleeve… I’m in love!

See?  Super cute.  :)  The finished product will have a self belt – this will do for the fitting, though!
