1930s Summer Fashions


Well, I was hoping to do some hair tutorials this weekend but I woke up with some sort poison ivy/oak rash all over my face! So, I hope you all enjoy some more old magazine scans for a few days!

I found a big shelf of old magazines at an antique shop near my mom's house in the country last summer. They've just been sitting around so I thought I'd share before they turn to dust someday! This is from Women's Home Companion, July 1939

  1. That last one looks like the cast of The Women. Paulette Goddard is on the bike, Norma Shearer is wearing the black-and-white outfit. And there's Joan Crawford in the snood, and that must be Rosalind Russell under that big yellow hat. :-)

    Gosh, I'd love to have that seahorse tote today.

  2. As much as I dislike sewing with Butterick patterns, I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't jump on the one for that dreamy white and green dress!

  3. Those green trousers...swoon, sigh, love!!! :)

  4. These styles are positively splendid! I love the practical linen dresses!

  5. I wonder how cool "cool control" was? I am so in love with the green plaid dress. :)

  6. Oh all these styles are super cute! I especially love the little purse in the last photo. I think I'll have a stab at making my own with more sea creatures!

  7. We have a great local fashion collector (1800-present) who lectures on all sorts of vintage themes. He is Ivan Sayers and he teaches at Simon Fraser University, Harbour Centre, downtown, Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Classes are always full.


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
