From all-lace confections to sleek satin sheaths, evening wear has evolved through the decades. Nothing is nicer than rocking these fashions whatever your age. 

Whether it's 1930s gown patterns, inspired by Scarlett O’Hara, when fashion turned back in time to the Victorian age, especially formal gowns and dresses, which embraced fitted bodices, puffed sleeves and large full skirts. 1940s evening gown patterns were simple but shiny and did tend to be more on the casual side than anything in the decades before or after. 1950s evening wear dress patterns accentuated the waist with the-bigger-the-better length or tea length skirts, as that was all women wanted to wear. Dior’s “New Look” was the major influence of first the first part of the decade. In the latter part of the 50s Monroe’s pink tube dress in Gentlemen Prefer Blonds caught the attention as did any garments worn by Marilyn.
