Model: ac459


Rare Spadea Doris Day, Ray Aghayan dress pattern, copyright 1965.
Dress with fitted bodice, plunging front U neckline and slip straight skirt. Sleeveless overblouse has top-stitched yoke and back button closing.
Size 14; Bust 36.5; Waist 26.5; Hip 37.5.
Pattern is unused and complete with pieces in original factory folds. The instruction page and pattern pieces are all in wonderful condition. Comes with it's original mailing envelope. The mailing envelope does have aging and wear.
You'll note that Spadea goofed on the spelling of Mr. Aghayan's name - "Agayhan". I'm very surprised to see this as it is not typical of Spadea at all.

As a fan of Doris Day - particularly her early 1960's movies - I was thrilled to come across this pattern. I'm not sure which of her movies this dress is from but I will continue to research and add the information if I find out. Most likely either, "Do Not Disturb" or "Move Over Darling" since Aghayan designed the costumes for both of those and they were both pre-1965.
