The time travel machine takes us to 1973; forty year old patterns, but classic fashion.
Oscar de la Renta gave us Vogue 2880 and McCall’s gave us 3788. Both were released in 1973. The McCall’s version has a little less fullness, but the photograph on the McCall’s pattern has that little tell-tale flower at the belt. Dead give-away. The power of suggestion. It would be interesting to learn which pattern was actually released first. The McCall’s version cost less, and used less material and therefore would also cost less to make.
