Ladies' 1958 Party Dress Pattern

Ladies' 1958 Party Dress Pattern
Gifted by: Sense and Sensibility
Reviewed by: Kaylee Pope

The style of the 1950s was all soft colors and lovely skirts. It is easy to see why fads from this time just keep coming back. The style is so elegant and feminine. It is impossible not to feel beautiful when sporting a skirt that accentuates your curves in a classic and chic way. If you are looking to bulk up on your vintage style, patterns from Sense & Sensibility are your best bet. Not only are the designs lovely, the patterns are easy to follow and complete. Looking at the photo of the Ladies’ 1958 Party Dress Pattern to the left might leave you feeling a bit intimidated. It looks like a professional and tough piece, only to be tackled by an experienced sewing master. Lucky for you, our friends over at Sense & Sensibility have managed to create a pattern that looks like it was created by an expert for beginners.

The directions provided to create this dress are detailed, thorough, and easy-to-follow. While the pattern will take you a while to create, it will not leave you endlessly frustrated like many store-bought patterns from big box stores. The instruction booklet takes you on a step-by-step journey of sewing and style. You will not be disappointed with the final result. This pattern is an excellent first big project for a new sewist. You will learn a set of brand new skills and exit the process with a brilliant, beautiful dress.

Look like Grace Kelly and sew like a professional when you explore the Ladies’ 1958 Party Dress Pattern from Sense & Sensibility. This pattern comes with everything you need to create this lovely dress as well as plenty of subsequent information on the always active Sense & Sensibility website. With everything there to help you have a successful sewing experience, it is hard to say no to such a fabulous project!

A dress from the year I was born and a very nice looking dress at that. I know this is a review so do you have to order the pattern through Sense and Sensibility or is it suppose to be posted on here. I would love to add this 1958 Party Dress to my collection. I can see it made out of all types of fabric from cotton to silk, from patterned to solid. Oh well maybe I will find it somewhere.

I think that I would have been super interested in whipping this dress up however just one thing missing...the main ingredient... the steak to my potato, the peanut butter to my jelly... THE PATTERN! I mean the intro was a mini thesis so where's the beef? Fix or get of the rotation Aka Or get off the You wasted 15 mins of my valuable doing nothing time! Ughhh hehe

Why is this pattern that is now 2yrs old no longer available still listed on your site in various places as new and also for free?

Hi nokaylalynn, this is a review written by one of our previous site editors and is not a free pattern. This is why it states Reviewed by and Gifted by at the top of the page. Thanks!

Love this dress! Why is there no link to the actual pattern? I had to Google it and found the blog. Unfortunately the pattern is not free...bummer -
