I need a pattern for a 1950's style prom dress.  Does anyone know where to find one?

I was looking at patterns for a sundress that I am planning on making, and Butterick had several retro patterns from various years in the 40's and 50's.  I did not look at the more formal dresses, but you might try looking at their patterns anyway.

I looked at their website, and here is what I found:

those are beautiful patterns. Do you want to make a dress? Try a consignment or antique clothing store for pre made stuff. they are usually not too difficult to alter slightly.
