Future Projects: Sewing Patterns, from 50s-70s does 40s Posted on September 8, 2011 by Janice I got these patterns over the summer and only had a chance to talk about them now. McCall’s 4589 skirt, circa 1970s. Could easily pass for 40s. Butterick 4104, another 70s does 50s romper. Simplicity 2331, circa 1950s. Love the sailor details. Simplicity 3882. I definitely need more versatile blouses.
