Summer Dress Patterns, Vintage 1962

It was the June 1962 issue of The Workbasket, which of course was delivered to homes in mid May, and starting it out right, they placed the pattern page right on the third page.   Mid to Late May, right as the weather is starting to get hot ... well everywhere but the NW of course.   And, just as one would expect, they are greeted with an array of Summer Dresses.  Semi-fitted bodices with interesting necklines and comfortable skirts.   Here, let me show you.

Mail Order 9071 - Smart dress with fitting darts square neckline and a short jacket, just in case you might need one.
Mail Order 4936 - A full of comfort six gore skirt to compliment the sleeves dress with the ultra cute collar and tie.
Mail Order 9187 - Sweetheart neckline and a pleated skirt, and jacket to boot.   How perfect could summer be!

Truthfully, I'd be happy to have all three, jackets included, in my closet.   But, if I had to choose just one, it would have to be Mail Order 4936; the collar with tab and bow would be too much to pass up.    I'm going to guess, that the orders were just pouring in.   Although, interestingly enough, I didn't find any references to them over at Vintage Wikia Patterns.

Hope you enjoyed the June 1962 fashion show.  
Thanks for dropping by,
Lorrie
