Brought to you from 1938!


As for me, well, I'm going to make a dress from 1941 using a very NON-vintage fabric:


I'm just going to make the front bodice, belt, and sleeve cuffs out of this material. The rest will be black. I'm making it from this pattern, which I've made three previous dresses from, but they no longer fit me...


I start work on this dress today! Yeay!!

40 Years of Fashion Evolution Before Your Very Eyes

Here it is -- the 40 most important years in fashion from the pages of Sears catalogs. This is what everyday people would have worn. Let's start in 1910. It was still practically Victorian times in 1910, but BIG changes were about to come and they haven't stopped to the current day. But we're going to stop in 1950 for the sake of my blog and my tastes.

Fashion from every year starting in 1910 and ending in 1950. Enjoy.
