  2. These posts have been terrific! Unfortunately, though, I have this almost irrational dislike of fashion in the 1950s - even though it would probably suit me much better than the 1920s - 1930s fashion I adore (bigger on the bottom than I am on the top). But there were so many innovations and design advances made during the 1950s - hence my use of "irrational" when describing my dislike. Perhaps its more the representation of values and mores during the time period that I hate...ugh, I don't know...in any case, these posts are a terrific encapsulation of fashions for a particular decade, and they're terrific! :)
    Thank you for posting these!

    1. 1947-1965 is my least-liked time period for fashion. I don't dislike everything, but my pattern collection is very scant on this time period. 1949 is HIDEOUS. 1958 got pretty bad, too. 1955-56 was nice, though. This era is just too matronly and frumpy for my taste. I also have a bit of dislike for the modern "rockabilly" scene. I like the music and fashion, just the people ruin. More drama in that scene than any other and I totally removed myself from it. That colors my opinion of the era, too! Lol.
