Summary
The 1940s were an iconic period of women's dress history, with familiar square shoulders, crêpe tea dresses and seamed stockings paired with red lips, victory curls and head scarves. This books explains the period's sewing techniques and makes a range of 1940s outfits to recreate the look of those vintage years. With detailed step-by-step instruction and over 300 photographs, it captures the style of the time and explains the impact of wartime austerity on the cut and construction of women's dress
