This stunning vintage gown from the 1950s demands to be noticed. Take note of the box pleats on the bodice that open up to a full skirt. The cape is especially seductive, along with the woman’s slicked-back hairstyle.

Again, we find a gown with a very full skirt. Instead of gathers at the waist, the gathers are above the waist on an inset bodice piece. So gorgeous!

This alluring dress pattern features a full skirt with vertical gathers and a dropped shoulder bodice with horizontal gathers. I am in love with the floral dress and intrigued by the suggestion that it could also be made into a wedding dress. This dress would stun in any era.

Speaking of wedding dress, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more seductive one than this. Swooning over the pale blue silk chiffon train coming from the front of the bodice that eliminates the need for anything else, except for the blue silk shoes.

Exude understated glamour with this 1950s day dress. The attached sleeves appear to have underarm gores, which is a fascinating and practical finish. In addition, the front bodice looks to have a seam without a closure, which would mean that the closure is in the back or a side seam. I would love to see this dress made up by a skilled sewist.

I can’t stop looking at that gorgeous draped sash that appears to begin at the shoulder and pass through the bodice to come out at the side waist. Of course, it does not, but the illusion is spectacular. The slim belt over the sash is a daring detail.

Do not scroll quickly past this stunning set featuring a wide v-shaped short jacket with a huge collar. The pleats on the jacket compliment the pleats on the gorgeous curved waistline and slim skirt.

The pleated top of that neckline is divine! Combined with the pleats on the waistline, it makes this dress irresistable. I’m not sure how I like the bow on the skirt, but the bow on the shawl that knots (or fastens) below the bust is so charming.

This three-piece suit was designed for the woman who plans to take control of the company. She will succeed.

This is the dress that coined the label ‘cougar.’ This woman gets what she wants and is formidable against anyone stopping her.

Step out in style today (or whenever you are done sewing) this gorgeous gown with bodice darts that are meant to be noticed. The accompanying coat is modern and striking with a lining to match the dress.

Is that Jackie Kennedy? It seems that this sheath dress and matching full coat with a single button closure was inspired by her unforgettable style. And she wasn’t even first lady until the 1960s.

This pattern was intended for three generations of women: the confident college grad, her elegant mother, and her stylish grandmother. All three looks still work now.

Be a bold woman in this elegant suit paired with a stunning blouse. I love the draped cross-over neckline with a curved seam. The faux fur lining on the jacket is a beautiful feature as well.

The slanted opening and nautical-style buttons on the bodice of this dress are a clever way to replace the darts. I’m not sure about the scarf belt. Would you wear it?
