Sense and Sensibility say "My love for the 1950s goes back to when I was a little girl in love with twirly skirts and dress-up. My glamorous grandmother handed down a lot of her 1950s clothes to me, and I wore the fancy, sparkly ones to bits as a girl, then wore the everyday ones to church as a teen (the only time I was the same size as my tiny “Mimi!”). There’s just something about 1950s fit-and-flare fashion that appeals to us no matter what decade we were born into, and I believe its silhouette will never go out of style.
Ladies' Classic 1950s Wardrobe blouse optionI’ve pulled together my favorite design elements from this decade–the full skirt and the demurely tailored pencil skirt; the fitted bodice and tailored sleeves; the curvy collar and the wide pointed collar; the detachable peplum and the removable dickie. You can mix and match to your heart’s content and create an entire closet full of flattering outfits that take you from relaxing on the patio in cool gingham to stepping out in sophisticated glamour with all the stops pulled out. Thanks to the inspiration of customer Denise B., I’ve also added a brand new set of instructions for a breathtaking petticoat a lá Alice Lon! See the embedded video below for a peep at this classic 1950s wardrobe staple!
