I thought this article in the May 22, 1953 edition of The T&C was very interesting.

It basically goes to show that around this time, when a more loosely cut drape silhouette had been the norm, a more waisted and fitted look was increasingly becoming to come back in. The new Edwardian fitted style is frequently discussed, and this trend was clearly beginning to spread beyond the British Isles to places such as Scandinavia. Of particular interest, is the fact that they describe the drape cut as being a straight silhouette - ie a bit shapeless. Shape was coming back in.
