How To Use a McCall Pattern

Happy New Year Pattern Lovers!
Here's a fabulous bit of 1940s McCall history discovered by RetroMonkeys


  1. Thank you for this info, I have worked with original patterns from this era and this is worth keeping a copy for reference.

  2. Wow! What a neat 1906 ad! I hadn't realized that McCall's was that old.

  3. I never did get on well with sewing and patterns and needles…thread…..McCall's?….
    the paper dolls, now that I could figure out!!!….I'm old enough to remember the magazine with paper dolls...

  4. Don't you love the silhouettes of that era? Wow...as I sit here in yoga pants and a t-shirt!
