Rose is an iconic 1950s style frock; she’s our best-seller, and we’re sure you can see why! Her fit and flare style is designed to enhance your curves; the ideal confidante, she discretely skims over any sensitive areas and praises your best bits! The inverted pleats flatter all ages, and occasions too – from beach to bridal wear.
Buy any two sewing patterns for £30.
Wearing a net petticoat will make the skirt flare more exaggeratedly, emphasising the contrast between your waist and hips for an hourglass effect; although using a stiff brocade fabric often renders a petticoat unnecessary, thanks to the clever box pleats! Metallics, bold prints, satin and crepe make Rose perfect for any special occasion, whilst cottons, florals and denim see her transformed into a versatile day dress for all seasons – try wearing her with a shirt underneath as a pinafore for the chillier months! Alternatively, scuba and neoprene fabrics bring Rose to the cutting edge of fashion.
Rose is also very popular with brides – lengthening the hem and using ivory or white satin and lace makes her a classic and elegant 1950s wedding dress.
