vintage pattern...

1950s McCall's pattern

During the 1950s, the classic wiggle dress was a popular staple in every woman's closet. Today, many designers try to immulate this retro design while incorporating modern details in exchange for a costly price tag. However with beautiful fabric and a sturdy sewing machine you can create your own custom wiggle dress at a fraction of the cost...and if your sewing skills are not exactly 'up to par' there are ton's of authentic, one of a kind wiggle dresses that can be purchased...like the one below.
This pattern can be found at the lovely etsy shop, Aunt Nonnies Nest.
