Reflecting the trends of wartime, with an emphasis on the ever-changing roles of women in society, this book illustrates the movement towards more masculine styles and patriotic fashions and colors, while still representing the tailored and restrictive styles that had once dominated the lady’s closet. Government rationing and limitations on everyday fabrics and textiles resulted in fashionable new creations. This book, drawn from the pages of the Sears-Roebuck catalogs, has over 400 images with thousands of items of clothing pictured. It gives the reader an insightful look at the fashions perspectives of the mid-1940s.
