We had a lovely consignment shop in our small town in Alabama that often sold vintage clothing. The owner said I could feel free to share her images with a link back to her site, so I thought I’d show off this wonderful 1950s party dress she sold on eBay. I wish I’d had a chance to snag it before it was sold, because I’d have loved to make a pattern from it! I’m still filing it away in my mental cabinet for future inspiration, you can be sure! This reminds me very much of “Liesl’s” party dress in the 1964 film, “Sound of Music.”

  1. So pretty and feminine. Have heard of your site, but now having the fun of visiting. I am someone with a degree (BS) in apparel design. I really liked making up-to-date designs using historical clothing as my inspiration. Will be in touch

  2. Love the dress but not sure I like the waistband/belt. It kind of breaks up that pretty feminine pattern too much and just doesn’t go with the dress.
