1950's Gathered Skirts

Here are some more lovely catalogue scans, this time of skirts from 1955.  I love the small flower one below (also the plaid dress)!


Some great ideas for printed skirts:

I ADORE the yellow number below.  I love how the pockets match the blouse:

Which do you like best?

  1. I'm a sucker for big, full, box-pleated skirts myself. The yellow is pretty.

  2. I couldn't possibly choose just one favourite when there are that many beautiful skirts. I love the permanent pleat skirt, and the navy and pink floral border skirt. I was just thinking of making another full skirt.

  3. Indeed, 50s fashion is wonderful, I think that clothing is the time with more color and fun.

  4. I like the dress above your yellow one with the turquoise belt - I would love to have that in my wardrobe for summer!

  5. Oh, hey, there's my shrug! (top left)

    Like Steph, I love the box pleated ones, but of the ones pictured here I love the one with all the tiny little pleats. I hope they're permanent press though! That much fabric at my waist would just be a disaster, though, sigh....

  7. Gosh the prints just kill me, they're always so awesome. I love that white skirt with the black leaves and bright splashes of large pink flowers. Though I do love the add for the "proportioned slim skirt". And only $3.98...!

  8. Those are so beautiful, they make me want spring to arrive even faster! I do love the yellow one. The heavily pleated one in the middle is beautiful too! I wonder how much fabric that one took!
