Whether you’re dressing to the nines or opting for a comfy frock, this 1950s-style prom dress courtesy of The Vintage Pattern Selector has you covered with its flattering box pleats and sweet neckline details – just one of the 15 retro-inspired sewing patterns available from this book. We recommend choosing a medium-weight cotton in a block colour for a classic evening dress, or try a fun print for a lighter garden frock. Download this special pattern for free and pencil in a date with your sewing machine.
