Patterns of the Past - Summer Clothes from 1953

From Workbasket, April 1953, some summer dresses to make for mother and daughter.

You sure do know how to jog my memory.. I remember wearing sundresses just like that.

Actually, I think somewhere in the basement I have a pattern for a shoulder-tied sundress (from the mid-1980's). It's a classic.

Don't you love how the little girl's dress opens up flat for ironing? I'm afraid that if I had been a mom in the 1950's, all my children's summer clothes would be made of seersucker.
