French Fashions From 1940's





I love this era of fashion. This era to me was the hight of style for women. The tailoring of the men and women were form fitting and flattering. 

I have pictures of my mother in similar fashions during war time. I love the 1940's movie fashion as well.

Ilove the dresses on the pattern front. So romantic! Weren't the women so slim during that era? No fast food and junk.

Well HI! Glad to have stumbled upon your blog.
Woah- love those patterns....
I once had sewn my own 'retro' dress from that era and I loved it.
Their patterns were so much simpler back then.
