I'm in a MOD mood. Perhaps because I am a boomer (on the tail end) or perhaps I watched too much I Dream of Jeannie this weekend. I would love to know if you have any pattern suggestions. There are a bunch on ebay and etsy, but I was hoping to find something in the current catalogs.

Simplicity and Burda have some reprints. I buy mine and a local senior citizens thrift shop.

oh my do I remember many of those! That Simplicity cape and pants 7866 is the outfit I made for the homecoming football game my junior year in high school! Loved that outfit, it's one of my all time favorite items I have made ever. I can remember how the wool fabric felt, the lining, how it fit- Thanks for the link and trip down memory lane!

Burda has some retro styles that appear to be reprints of their 60's patterns:

What about current Vouge's Ann Klein V1382, or V8944? those both look pretty 60's mod even though they are not supposed to be reproduction patterns of that decade at all. But if you just made them shorter in the hem length, they both look kind of "London Calling" or "Dollybird" like, and could probably just step into that decade too.

Or maybe get a real Mary Quant Butterick pattern from the real 1960's ?

Those styles were pretty much 'unto themselves' in terms of design. Really, the seaming details and shaping--high, HIGH little armholes, often square, and the most inventive yoke treatments--were quite different from anything I have seen since that time. There really is nothing like that in current catalogues. Here's an example.

The garments that are seen on Mad Men, for example, are just the merest tip of the style iceberg of the period--and for the most part, are the most conservative that would have been seen then.

I'd suggest getting a real Mary Quant pattern (or that of any designer) from that era to get an idea of what was really going on.
