>1930s Inspiration- Separates and Jackets

>

Eeeny meeny, miny mo… I’ll take them all.  Just wrap them all up and send them COD. 
Don’t you wish it was that easy?
I’m such a sucker for 1930s sportswear.  It seems so easy and free- little tops and skirts and trousers you could throw on in a moment’s notice.  It’s casual and still chic- no over the top glamour, but fun and practical little clothes I could see wearing today!
Here’s a few pages of inspiration for the weekend- tops, jackets, dresses, and skirts.  Two from 1936 and one from the Fall and Winter of 1938-1939.  Enjoy!
Have a great weekend!

    >When will someone invent a special fashion "time machine"?! Its sole function is to facilitate ordering from vintage catalogs somehow, like that movie with Keanu Reeves with the mailbox…I love casual 20s and 30s sportswear looks– they remind me of Jordan Baker (from The Great Gatsby) and Bonnie Parker! melina bee

    >I always wish I could just get an hour in a 30s shop. The only problem…..I might never want to come back!

    >I love separates! I always wonder where all the extra clothes went from the mail order catalogs, and secretly hope there's still more out there yet undiscovered!

    >gah! The second scan, letter "F" — I have a skirt pattern pretty much identical to that one that I never made!!! NEED TO MAKE. But I don't know what material would have been used. I don't want to make it on flimsy cotton. Do you have any suggestions?

    >I find it so frustrating sometimes to look at vintage catalogs because of wanting to order it all!I've just passed the Sugar Doll award to you from my blog.
