1940s Fall Fashions
A friend of mine recently gave me this pattern catalog from 1947-1948. It has some really fun things in it, and the drawings provide back views of all the garments as well. I'd love to see if I can find the patterns anywhere, since I have all of the pattern numbers. I have a feeling it might be a little like searching for a needle in a haystack, since it's not one of the standard, big name mail order pattern companies, but I do love some of the designs. I'm working on getting the whole catalog scanned and posted for you all to look through. For now, I have the first six or seven pages done. Which ones are your favorites?
I also have some 1930s drafting and draping books that I'm working on copying and hopefully scanning to share with you all. That's going to take quite a bit of time, though, so I can't make any promises as to when I'll have it done.
