Decades of Style #3011 -- 1930s Stardust Skirt

I'm back! And I'm sewing again. Why? Because I have lost nearly 20 lbs and I'm back to "normal" pattern sizes again. I stopped sewing for a while because I had gained 30 lbs. I was outside the "normal" range of sizes for most patterns. Gaining 30 lbs was absolutely unacceptable to me so I did something about it. One of the many rewards is being able to sew again. And just to be clear -- I am CRAP at resizing patterns! That is the main reason I didn't sew. That, and I knew I would lose it :)

Ok, let's get started. I recently made Decades Of Style's 1930 Stardust Skirt. I love it!

Now, I'm not the best sewist...lol. I mainly just sew for fun and for myself. But after not sewing anything really for a while, it was nice to do it again! And I hadn't forgotten!

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.
