Three 1950s Ladies’ Patterns

By Jennie Chancey


Here is an adorable trio of patterns by Advance. All are from the early-to-mid 1950s. I think my favorite is the one on the far left with its matching jacket. The gored skirt is flattering and feminine. The jumper/blouse combo in the center reminds me of Leslie Caron in “Daddy Longlegs” or Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday.” Very tailored and beautiful. The dress on the far right is a casual day dress perfect for a picnic in the back yard.

    Jennie, would you consider turning these into available patterns? I wouldn’t know where else to find such lovely things, but these look marvelous. I especially like the blue dress, and the very last one on the far right.

      Hi, Genevieve! I’ve had requests for 1950s patterns and do have them on a future idea list. This year I’m doing 1780s, though. Thanks for the request!

    The dress on the far right reminds me very much of what Ethel Mertz wore on the “I Love Lucy” show!
