Tres Excitement!

During the week I found this newspaper clipping folded up inside my McCall’s 6564 pattern envelope. MEGA EXCITEMENT. I think the person who owned this pattern before me was hoping to make the coat (view c) out of this pattern to look like the newspaper clipping. It is pretty close, just needs lengthening and a sash.

THE GOLD of a sunset is captured in this exquisite evening ensemble from the new spring collection from Pierre Balmain of Paris. The designer topped a floor-length evening gown with an equally long coat done in the same brilliant goldne yellow shantung. The bodice of the gown is encrusted with lavish embroidery, shimmering in gold and sky blue.
