Wishing for slow curves with Givenchy… McCalls 3625

It isn't Audrey... it IS Givenchy...

Summer 1956, if you had a dollar… a whole dollar… you could forego that family outing to the local ice-cream parlour and keep the curves on your dress seams with GIVENCHY 3625… today is a WISHLIST pattern as featured in the McCalls Pattern Book of Summer 1956. It isn’t in my collection but one day, if the moons align, I may find it and the price will be right. This dress screams sweet Audrey glamour. When it occasionally surfaces on auction sites like eBay, it sells for hundreds of dollars… thats a lot of ice-cream!
