Some snapshots from our session on WW2 fashions: 1939 to 1946 (the extra year is because fashions took a while to change after the war). I love this era! These garments are from my own private collection, and that of Dr Lynn Savery – and be warned, there are lots.
Wool princess line coat.
One of my favourite dresses: you might see me wearing this in the shop.
Cotton floral dress.
Rayon floral crepe (another from my own wardrobe).
Dancing dress – and gold dress from Lynn’s wardrobe.
Early ’40s printed suit – Lynn’s.
Sateen jacket (actually crimson).
Lynn’s summer jacket.
Linen summer suit.
Crepe wedding dress with diamante buttons.
Going away dress – originally grey, the fabric has changed colour over the years.
Lynn Savery’s blue wool coat.
