20 free 1950s vintage dress sewing patterns

My kids return to school next month and although I'll miss them while they're gone all day I will be so happy to have more time and space for sewing again! I've been pouring over all kinds of websites looking for sewing inspiration and I collected some beautiful freebie patterns that I'm dying to try. \

Sewing can be more expensive than buying ready-to-wear clothes so free patterns are great for a sewist on a budget! Here are 20 free 1950s style dress patterns and tutorials, I hope you enjoy them!
