Happy 80th birthday to Oliviero Toscani! Before creating his famous Benetton campaigns, the Italian photographer shot this cover for McCall’s Carefree pattern book.
The model wears Extra-Carefree McCall’s 4054 / 4055 with the Carefree “Miracle Yard” pattern, McCall’s 2001, all in Wamsutta cotton batik. Inside, Toscani’s “Summertime” shows her in McCall’s 4052 in two versions: in Ameritex cotton and linen-look from Lawrence & Klauber.
From Diana Vreeland’s Vogue, a mid-1960s Franco Rubartelli editorial featuring Françoise Rubartelli in two white jumpsuits made with Vogue patterns — or as Vogue puts it, “Two jumpsuit patterns with lean moon-shot lines, cut for action in pale moon-coloured jersey.”
I previously featured this Young Fashionables hooded jumpsuit in my Jill Kennington post, but American Vogue made it first, in Heller double-knit Celanese acetate:
The Courrèges-inspired two-piece jumpsuit uses two patterns for a tunic and custom-fit pants, both made up in Wamsutta Orlon double-knit jersey.
