Wednesday Morning Brunch

I found this dress at the Fairfax Flea Market my first summer in LA. It was too big for me, but I couldn't resist buying it and was able to take it in enough to fit. It's made out of bandanas and trimmed in white ric-rac. I think it might be my favorite dress (if I had to pick one) even though I haven't found that many times to wear it. Today my aunt and uncle from Bellingham, Washington are in town on a layover to South America and we're having brunch so I finally have an excuse to wear it again. A few weeks ago, I ran across the pattern for it on EBay and again, couldn't resist. I took out all the pattern pieces in an ambitious moment and then put them right back in the envelope. Wow, that's a lot of pattern pieces. I'd love to attempt it someday.

Bandannas? That dress is amazing . . I can see why it's your favorite.

Thanks for the moving advice, btw! Where are you planning on moving?

That dress is fabulous! I've searched the internet for the McCall's 8332 Pattern without success :( Would you ever consider scanning it to PDF file for sharing please? As it's such an old pattern & out of print I doubt McCalls would mind if you did.

Hi !! Can you please tell me if you can sell the pattern for this dress or a copy?? I have a party to go in 30 days and I'll love to make this dress. Thanks, Gri

Beautiful! Sadly, that pattern is still in copyright, so it can't be legally copied - and McCall's is vicious about protecting its copyrights. I would love a red bandanna version, though.
