Today's Pattern Story: Advance 6955



Pink: Would you look at that!

Blue: Huh.

Pink: Now that’s something you don’t see every day.

Blue: Not in our town, that’s for sure.

Pink: How do you think … what do they … well, doesn’t that look … dangerous? I mean, medically?

Blue: I dunno, they seem to be having fun.

Pink: All I know is, I’m going to have a LOT of questions for Margie at bridge tomorrow.

      • I just saw an argument on Pinterest about the small size of some of the “plus size”models. Marilyn being a size 14 was brought up. Sizes were definitely different in her day.


  1. Love the dress, but all those buttonholes and buttons must have taken forever. (We didn’t get a buttonhole making attachment until the late 1960’s, and it would always mess up at least one.)


    • I learned to sew using my mother’s old machine, which didn’t have a buttonhole maker. She taught me how to make one the old-fashioned way, just using a zig-zag stitch, and that’s how I still make them. I don’t trust the buttonhole attachment!


  2. I can’t stop thinking about this dress! What would you call that type of collar? Is there a name for it? Thank you!
