Known as the fabulous fifties, this post-war era had a positive energy, increased economic prosperity, and a ‘baby boom’. It is also considered a time where the concept of a teenager was born, meaning fashions were developed with youth culture in mind. Today we will look at 1950s fashions and the vintage sewing patterns we have, so you can recreate these styles for yourself.
There’s something so romantic about vintage fashion and the way it can bring glimpses of a lost time into the present day. Luckily for the fashion geeks among us, none of the killer looks from the past are ever entirely lost! Vintage styles are always coming back into fashion to the point where certain prints such as floral and gingham have become timeless statements in the fashion world.
