I found this one in a stack of newer patterns last weekend and about fainted. The envelope is quite tatty but the pattern itself is uncut. McCall's 9243 Breathtaking Strapless Evening Dress & Coat 1952 and the detailing on the upper bodice and lower skirt is fantabulous. The coat has that same puffy detailing at the end of the sleeves. This dress is best worn in the spotlights of a movie premiere.
Here's what else is new!
