I have always been a fan of the full skirted dresses from the 1950s. This vintage pattern didn't disappoint. (*sigh* puffy sleeves)
60 years old and it's strawberry transfers were still intact!
What I thought was a dress pictured on the pattern was actually separates.
Which was awesome. More outfits!
Women knew their sewing techniques back in the 50s. Darts, waistbands, and buttons. This pattern uses them all.
I know that back in the day your clothes dollar counted so a matching wardrobe made good money sense. I'll bet every little girl had a plain (handmade!) cardigan to round out their outfits. I could learn from that.
