Vintage Patterns - Vintage Fabric - Vintage Style
  1. I am on a yellow kick at the moment, so personally that is what I would go for.
    But pinks, baby blue, robin egg, etc. All have a very summery feel to them and just make me happy when I see 50s dresses done in them 🙂

  2. The 50s were known for pastel sherbet-like colors. So the colors of raspberry sherbet, orange sherbet, pineapple sherbet, lime sherbet–if there were blueberry or grape sherbet, I am sure those colors would work too. Rose prints, polka dots, stripes, & gingham are all patterns that work for the 50s.

  3. Pastels are very ‘in’ at the moment.
    Personally I’m quite fond of a pastel pink or blue. I would say florals and subtle stripes are also a fave.

  4. Don’t forget that we can’t all wear the same colors. Try to get some warmer shades, too. Buttery yellow (not lemony), prints with tan or ivory backgrounds, floral prints with warm greens (not cool, minty), prints including touches of chocolate brown.

  5. Thanks ladies, thats a great help,definantly going to include a
    turquoise maybe with a cream collar with tan piping!! Coral also a
    Possibility…busy this week but of fabric shopping next monday :))
