Marvelous McCall...

In 1935, The McCall Pattern Company leveled the gender playing field with this one.
I would LOVE looking smart as one of the fellows emerging from the bath in this robe.
Overall, it is masculine in style, yet femininely detailed with shaped pockets and shaped revers!
My favorite attributes are the square armholes, French cuffs and the 'necktie' belt!
I will love to make a coat out of this pattern some day with contrasting sleeves!

(Now available in size 38" bust)

Another example of the McCall 'gender-bending' in this vest pattern:
