“Planned for all Occasions”

Here are more pattern goodies from 1950.

The description for #8597 is just too much:  “two piece frock that’s softened with pert peplums.”  Pert peplums!  I cannot think of the last time a contemporary pattern description made me laugh out loud!  And that is just one more reason that I love vintage!

If I was able to shop from this catalog, I would have a very hard time picking just a few styles.  They are all so wonderful!

  1. Love these beautiful, sophisticated 1950s daywear styles. The first dress in the last illustration (with the lattice like strips on the neckline and bodice) is especially terrific.
