Drop-Waist---50s Style

Lately, I have been in love with the 1950s "drop-waist" style.

These are two which display the basic silhouette where the waist is accentuated, while the flow of the dress doesn't start until the hips, where it is fitted around the waist until if flows out. I rather like this look and would like to make some in the future.

See there are many different styles, scalloped, straight or from either side. I can't wait to design one of my  own. Here is the pattern I own already.

  1. I really like the last two patterns. They are all very pretty dresses. I need something to wear to a wedding in October. What do you recommend?
