A Tidbit

April 9, 2011

This is a very short post. I just thought I’d share a couple of pictures from the June 1940 Hollywood Patterns booklet in my collection.

Do any of you think that hood will ever come back in? It must have mussed up one’s hair terribly.

Sometimes when I look at the hooded jacket, I think snow white/ opera coat glamor. Other times, I can’t help but picture those towel-like bath coats for babies with the same hood. I can’t reconcile the two. What do you think?
A Few Threads Loose.

  1. Gah I love all those outfits! I think thr hood looks sophisticated on the model lady but if it was made up it would probs look like a costume.

  2. I think hoods are fabulous. If you had enough "attitude" (think Paulette Goddard in The Women or Meryl Streep in The French Lieutenant's Woman) you could totally pull it off.
