There’s something about 1950’s style dresses that are not only classic but elegant and sophisticated. It’s a style that I wish would come back and stay for a while.
This dress pattern from Simplicity (3769) is a gorgeous piece. Obviously it is based on a 1950’s style with an added twist. The waist ribbon is to die for! I don’t think I can sew this fast enough!
How many women are with me? Is this style not fantastic? If you wore this around the house doing chores, you can’t tell me that your significant other wouldn’t find you adorable and stylish.
I have always been a fan of Audrey Hepburn’s style and will seek out fashions that reflect her charm and grace. That fashion style just oozes a sense of style that we haven’t seen for decades. I think that’s why Mad Men parties are so popular. There’s a part of us that want that style to make a come back and since it hasn’t happened yet, we have decided to disguise our wishes by having Mad Men parties.
If you end up receiving a Mad Men party invite or decide it is time to have your very own, here is a pattern you can use to create your outfit.
