1950s Formal/Semi-Formal Gown Pattern

By Jennie Chancey

1950s Evening Gown

A gorgeous 1950s gown pattern–probably for bridesmaids’ dresses. The one on the left would be for a formal evening wedding, while the one on the right would work for a daytime wedding. Dreamy!

Share the love!

    Do you know where I can get this dress (the one in blue)? I am a bridesmaid and this is what the bride wants me in but in a burnt red, burnt orange or light coffee color (like coffee with cream in it.

    Thanks

      Hi, Jennifer! You might check with my Seamstress-in-Residence to see if she can make it for you from the picture. I do not have the full pattern, but I can give her what I do have, which would help. Let me know!

      Sorry! I don’t have the pattern–all the pieces were missing from the envelope when I got it in a box lot. You might run a search for the pattern name and number on eBay, though!

          Whoops! I forgot the image didn’t have the entire cover. This is Butterick 6298. No copyright date, but I’m guessing early 1950s. Hope this helps!

    I am planning a wedding and am wondering if there is a way I could get the pattern for the blue dress. Perhaps a name/number of pattern to search?

      Hello, Alyssa! Unfortunately, I sold this pattern two years ago, and my scan doesn’t have a pattern number on it. :(
