If you remember my Barbie patterns from earlier this week, you’ll remember I found many fantastic vintage patterns on that trip. Another favorite pattern I found has to be this Brooke Shields McCall’s offering. Snazzy! Did anyone out there ever make a top from this collection?

    Oh, dear. I can remember being about 14 year old, and making view D of this pattern. I thought I was *pretty* stylin’ in that shirt. Yes, I did.

  2. CathyE says:

    I think I made several versions of view A. So quick and easy, and versatile.

  3. Jennifer B says:

    hard to imagine at Brooke Shields daily pay rate that McCalls could afford her at that age!!!

  4. Annie says:

    I have a different Brook Sheilds pattern from that era – I can’t remember offhand what it was – will have to dig it out to see – lol

    Oh, I made D in lavender voile for a sewing class when I was 14! Forst shirt ever, and easy too.

    What even more amazing is the price, $3.50!
