1958 Ladies Party Dress

June 19, 2014

So I finally got around to making a wearable muslin of my “Ladies 1958 Party Dress” by Sense & Sensibility Patterns! I highly recommend this pattern to any newbie or experienced sewer! It was a dream to work with and very easy to alter. The full gathered skirt, and kimono-sleeved bodice are just wonderful! So comfortable and versatile this is the kind of pattern you can make either as fancy or as casual as you’d like it to be!


For my wearable muslin I used this great peach linen-blend fabric that I picked up at Hancock Fabrics on sale for 3.00 a yard! For the belt I just used some mint cotton broadcloth and fusible interfacing with some snaps on the back 🙂 Find more details on my blog http://frillz24.blogspot.com/





  1. that looks lovely, I was expecting a stiff cream calico type thing. Very Alice in Wonderland, well the fifties was pinching inspiration from the past too.
