Saturday Image Bonus 164

Today I have five pages from a 1940 McCall's pattern booklet.  I just love the styles of this period. The padded shoulders, hats, gloves, plaids, stripes and polka dots are all signatures of this time.




As always feel free to use any of the images on my website in your artwork but please do not post or sell the original image on the web in a group or collection or alone. If you use one in a project and post it to your site please link it back to here or leave a comment in the comments section of the image on this site so we can all enjoy. I love to see what you create. Please be sure to leave a comment if you stop by. It inspires me to post more.

Is it just me or do the little girl's dresses look way too short. I thought those kid dress lengths appeared in the 60's alongside the miniskirt revolution.
