The dress on the right looks just right for an afternoon shopping. The one on the right has a more casual yet still “put-together” look.
It is easy to see the beginnings of 1950s “New Look” styling in this 1948 pattern by McCall’s. The skirts are fuller, and the focus is on the waist. This is especially noticeable on the dress with the diagonal stripes emphasizing the hourglass shape.
These suits are beautifully tailored and very appropriate for Fall and Winter wear.
The dress on the right would be appropriate to wear to an afternoon party or daytime wedding. The one on the left is suited for shopping or a town outing.
Smart dresses for day wear. Note the top-stitched shoulder yoke–a common style in this period.
I especially like the short-sleeved version of this 1940s suit.
These pretty dresses feature interesting ruched pocket detailing.
Two cute variations on the sailor theme! These are from the mid-to-late 1940s.
Here are four mid-1940s blouses, suitable for day wear. The gathered area under the dropped shoulder yoke is common, and you’ll see it again and again in my 1940s images.
I love this sharp dress with the buttons down the side! The feminine touches (bows, ruffle) just make this outfit shine.
