Vintage Fashion - Patterns for the Not so Slim -1954

Today a lovely fashion spread from June 1954 (The Australian Women's Weekly) - Fashion Patterns for the Not so Slim.

The patterns range from 38 inch bust to 44 inch bust. As someone with a 44 inch bust, I wish I looked as good as these girls! (Of course they would all be wearing corsets or 'foundation garments.')

Points to note -

  • Princess line or straight skirts - no full skirts
  • Nipped in waists - show off those curves!
  • Below knee-length skirts
  • Interesting necklines and bust detail
  • Mostly the one color, with accents
