More Inspiration - 50's

Oooo! Vintage fans, check out this collection of 50's dresses. There are more than a dozen photos but here are some of my favorites.

It's hard to see much detail in this pretty floral but I think I like it a lot. The neckline is a little higher than I like for summer. And gloves? Lovely and elegant but no thank you.

I love the border on this one. Not sure about wearing a mostly white dress though. It's something I've always shied away from.

Oooo, a big, bias-cut plaid. I must do this!

And finally, I need this coat - the one in the middle.

I also like the applique skirts and the country style jumpers. What about you?

By the way, I have a shirt finished except for the buttons so I will have something to show off soon.


  1. The silhouettes are gorgeous. I agree with you about the bias-cut plaid dress -- it looks fantastic. And I think you should absolutely make a coat like that. It's dramatic in the best way possible!

    1. The challenge will be finding the right plaid. I rarely see any that big.
