My instructor brought in to class last week this amazing, yet deteriorating book of fashion illustrations from 1940.  Hopefully next week I’ll get to scan more.  Here are a few!

Those are simply lovely! So elegant with the flowers and ruffles, and I particularly like the black gown with all those flounces. They look so fun to dance in!

Thanks for sharing!
