Butterick August 1960


Here we are in the dog days of summer.. let's take a peek back to Butterick, August 1960!

Butterick 9441
Oh dear, to the dismay of children everywhere, August means back to school!  And Butterick has some really cute back-to-school fashions for 1960.  This is a total collegiate look, don't you think?

Butterick 5436, 9442, 9439, 9437, 9475
I love the cute graphics with the chalkboard writing and the typewriter print.  Some of these are made with "1 yard" thus the "1 yard line" pun.

Jersey Girl Patterns has Butterick 9422 in stock!

Similar "One Yard" patterns:


1.)  McCall's 6022; @ Fancywork
2.)  McCall's 4680; @ Clutterina and Grey Dog Vintage
3.)  McCall's 5910; @ Sydcam123
4.)  Butterick 2431; @ Jeanie's Shop

Butterick 9484; 9452; 9465; 9457; 9487; 9482
Really cute looks for girls and teens shown here!  Which one do you like best?  The 60s were such a rollercoaster of a decade... can you see the beginings of the mod look here?  (If I tried to paint in that dress, I'd have paint all over my skirt...)

Some similar looks:


1.)  Simplicity 4643; @ Happy I Found It
2.)  Advance 9469; @ Pitter Pattern Place
3.)  Simplicity 5223; @ So Sew Some and Jeanie's Shop

Butterick 9470; 9469; 9460; 9459; 9426
So many cute looks!  If you want to look put together, you can't beat these looks.  Ahhh the days when people went to class not wearing pajama pants...

Butterick 9469 is an "outfit maker" pattern, with several options for both blouse and skirt!  Lucky for you, it's in stock at both Grandma Made With Love and Redcurlz's.
