1950s and 60s dress patterns are here!

Standard
Wow, this has taken a long time!  As you might be able to tell by the green grass in some of the pix, I started these over the summer.  And finally, now that it’s snowing this week there are TWO sets of dresses premiering.  All of them are historically accurate and based on outfits for girls from that time.

A 1960s collection sized for both AG and slim 16″-18″

(yes, including the new Girl for all Time, Sam!!)

Lots of mod styles and color-blocking to be found here!
This was a girl’s dress, but looks very much like a pink one made for Sashas…
AND

A 1950s collection sized for AG.

  It doesn’t say so in the etsy listing, but two of the dresses in this set (the blue flowered one and the pinafore dress) do include tested pattern pieces for slim 16″-18″.
This flowered one is my favorite
Or maybe this one…it’s hard to decide!
Click on any of the pix to go to the listings and see more!

And as always when I introduce collections, there’s a coupon code, just in time to get some patterns in anticipation of holiday sewing!  Use the code 20OFF20 from now until midnight Sunday to take 20% off any purchase of $20 or more.

On the blog survey one person asked for a 1930s outfit for Ellowyne based on the covers of Nancy Drew books.  That sounded like a fun project, but when I started looking at them it was hard to choose which one I liked the best.  If you were that person and have a specific dress in mind, could you please email me or leave a comment?  A pic would be super helpful.

  1. This is adorable, Jennie! I love the 1960’s set, and I’m sure this pattern will be very popular when the new 1960’s Beforever AG doll is released next year! I love the simple A-line dresses and their fun color blocking! The 1950’s dresses are also very pretty! It would be great to see the pictures that were your inspiration for all of those!

  2. Oh so LOVE these 50’s/60’s styles, Jen — awesome, as always!!! When things stop breaking/wearing out in this nearly 10-year-old house, I’ll be oh so happy — sigh!!! Since I still don’t have Maryellen and still haven’t been to our new AG Store, I have not only that to look forward to, but now your awesome new patterns.
