Looking for old pattern
Sport dress frOm mid 60's

In the mid 60's I made a couple sporty dresses. They had low waists, and pants attached to the bodice. Then they had flaps in the front and back that made them look like dresses. I think they would make great golf dresses--without pants required underneath. Does anyone remember a pattern like this? It would have been from one of the major companies at that time, I.e., Butterick, McCalls, or Simplicity. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Perhaps there is something new out there similarly styled that I just haven't run across.

Think they were called a culotte dress or pant skirt dress.

For golfing, wouldn't it be less constricting to wear separates? My MiL always wore a pullover top and a pantskirt for golf.

Sorry, I can't think of any patterns off hand. Possibly you could do a search for vintage patterns sites.

Those were called skorts - I remember them! Like this:

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Hmmm, OK, but I didn't think the term "skort" came out until at least the 80s. In the pattern's description it does say "pantdress". Either way they served a good purpose.

Well, she said the pants attach to the bodice, so it would be more like....um....I'm not sure because she said it could be worn without the pants, so it would just be a dress?

There is this Kwik Sew pattern that has a skort, top, and cardigan that might be similar to what you are looking for

Can't help with the pattern but the term 'skort' was definitely around in the early 'sixties' as I remember how thrilled we were by them. My mom sewed several pairs for all three of us girls. We were 8, 10 and 11 in 1961, the same year that 'pop tops' (waist-length blouses) were big.

Are you talking about a scooter skirt? I remember the dress version, though; exactly like the picture. I had the dress one in a houndstooth blue and white wool and one in red with brass buttons; late 1960's.

Look at Butterick. I made one from them and I love it. I've got to go to the groomers, but will look when I get back.
