Here is a scrap from my own collection, showing Shirley on the set of “Just Around the Corner.” What I love about children’s fashions of the 1930s are the crisply tailored lines and delightful design details. Notice Shirley’s ruffled pinafore that isn’t “fussy” and the ribbon bows on the bodice front.
