Hello all, bear with me as I'm a newbie on the site. I am looking for vintage patterns from the 1960's for a girls 3 arm-holed dress. The ones I have seen online that have already been snatched up specifically are McCalls 9181, Butterick 4698 and Simplicity 7572. My Mother made these for use in Florida back in 1968! The pattern is very easy to make and wonderful as a cooler summer dress or a cover up. thanks for your patiencedonna

I think they also called them maybe a "matchbook"dress on some of the old pattern envelopes, so if googling things to try to find one, stick that term in there, and see what comes up on that too.

Whoa, I couldn't picture what you'd do with 3 armholes and I had to find a visual:



It's a wrap!

Jadamo00, Thanks for posting a picture. I've long forgotten about this pattern. I reminds me of the paper dresses in the late 60's early 70's.

I really loved them. Forgot all about them until your post. They would make a great swim cover- but perhaps not, now that I more round than straight. But so easy to slip on and off.
