Swingdress from Praktische Mode 03/1958

in 1950s

Hello Ladies, i want to show you my last dress.

The Dress is from the german Praktische Mode June 1952. There are no instructions, but only a pattern with few clues. So I’m very proud that it worked anyway.

The fabric is incidentally from the flea market, so I have no idea what it is for a material. But it is very lightweight and drapes beautifully.

Because the dress at the waist is too wide, the button placket – luckily – only decoration.

I love the dress very much, so i hope it will soon be very hot, so I can wear it.

I named it swingdress, because the wonderfully wide skirt and the loose top is great for dancing. More information you can find on my blog Beswingtes Allerlei.

That neckline and collar are beautiful. The shoulder tucks are great too. What a lovely dress.
