Doll clothes are such a great medium for show casing some of the beautiful vintage styles.
My latest pattern 1828 Slim Dress is a faithful copy of the slimmer silhouette of the mid 1950's designed to be teamed with a crop jacket. Pattern 1829 for the jacket will be out soon.
As said by Donna Cosmato on lovetoknow.com
"The hourglass figure gave way to a more columnar shape. Instead of the plaid and polka dots so popular in the early 50s, late-50s styles featured more monochrome fabrics."
Though this slim dress looks fabulous with a contrasting plaid or check jacket.
The back has a dart to shape the skirt around her little bottom so it stays narrow around the hem.
