Vintage Pink And White Gingham Dress Close-Up

The pattern of the 1950s-style dress is really simple: The dress is basically constructed of rectangles and triangles.

Cartridge Pleats - 1950s Gingham Dress

I attached the skirt to the bodice with cartridge pleats. Cartridge pleats were very popular in the Victorian era and the 1950s saw a revival of Victorian fashion. Dirndl skirts are usually attached with cardridge pleats as well.

Tie And Snap Closure - Vintage Gingham Dress

The vintage dress is closed with self-fabric ties and snaps in the back. I think the bows are a nice detail.
