|Teddy Girls - 1950's|
The girls in these images seem much more rebellious with their capri pant trousers and casual look. Most women and girls in the 1950's wore dresses or skirts and trousers were seen as home wear. The neckscarves are an iconic 1950's look.
Based on these images I have sourced a few patterns that might be suitable or can be adjusted to suit the style.
