Butterick 6567

In 2009/2010 I was a little sewing machine. I sewed so many lovely 30s and 40s dresses it was insane. At the end of 2010 a series of events began and my sewing waned. Actually, I just stopped all together until the last 2 weeks. I would bang out a dress in a day at one time. I had an enviable vintage wardrobe! Now, it took me about 3 weeks to finish an APRON. Lol. Work, husband, school, and changing styles has lead me to sew a lot less often.
I did enjoy making my little apron. I may make more. They are too cute.

  1. Nice work. I love vintage aprons. I sort of collect them. And by collect them I mean I steal my grandmother's and great aunt's aprons from my mom when she's not looking.

Sailor/Nautical Chic!

1915:

1915 was a very pivotal year for fashion. It was the year restrictive Victorian styles began to give way to what would evolve into breezy 1920s styles. This is the earliest nautical styled dress I've seen in the Sears catalogs.

1921:

Nautical-style Middie blouses were popular throughout the Great War and early 1920s.

1922:

1924:

1924 is the last time nautical-styled clothing appears in the Sears catalogs for several years. Deco-styled "flapper" dresses will dominate. Perhaps they were "over" the Great War and didn't want to dwell on it...;)

1931:

Sailor girls begin to show up again in 1931. The heyday of nautical travel!

After 1941, sailor influences pretty much disappear from fashion.

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.
