    The Sound of Music is a 1965 American musical drama film directed and produced by Robert Wise and starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.

    In 1967 Butterick issued 4 girls' patterns after the movie:

    3699 (Girl's Dress, Westkit and Scarf),

    3700 (Girl's Jacket, Skirt and Blouse),

    3701 (Girl's Two-Piece Dress)

    and 3702 (Girl's Cape) and there were modelled by the young actors of the movie: see here.

    But other patterns inspired by the musical movie were also issued in those years:

    Simplicity 3607

    Butterick 3272
