1937 Vogue Pattern Magazine

Gorgeous! I don't remember where I picked this up, but the styles are gorgeous. Late 1930s, one of my favorite eras! Aren't they all?! I love the mixture of slim elegance with a bit of the 40s structure seeping in. And the hats!! I could go on and on about the hats.....



"A maximum of chic.....a minimum of construction."

    1. It is so classic and chic. I love the use of gathers and draping that is so typical of that era.
