Casual Fall Style – 1942

August 7, 2013

I started collecting WWII era women’s fashion and home periodicals because they’re truly the best, most authentic source for 1940’s inspiration. I get so many ideas for new sewing projects when browsing images such as these photos, scanned from the Fall/Winter 1942-43 Sears and Roebuck catalog. I think they’re a nice peak into the casual working woman’s wardrobe during that era.

I don’t know about you, but I’d buy one of everything! Especially at the 1942 prices ๐Ÿ˜‰ If only… guess I’ll just have to sew some things instead!
What outfit would you recreate?
