Swing Dancing and dresses

So as some of you know, I teach Swing Dancing! I'm in the process of planning a ball for sometime in March and some of my friends and I are wanting to go in 1950's style costumes. The other young ladies who attend will be in formals, and the gentlemen in tux's or nice suits. I have been searching for some dress ideas, and here are some that I came up with ^.^:

                  I love how fun this one is!:

But I must say, this one is my all-time favorite. I would love to find a pattern similar to it:

For the ball, I need some decoration ideas. I would like it to be a retro/1950's-ish style. Any of your ideas for the decorating and/or dress patterns are very welcome!

Until next time....


  1. Cute, cute, cute! The first one is so sweet! Can't wait to make one! :o)
