Forties films: a whole new reason to watch

I was watching TV while I tidied up, an early Hitchcock film was on and I noticed something: the clothes.

This one on the younger daughter caught my eye because its similar to something I’m making for Wee Bear just now!

Even the ‘dowdy’ older mother is smartly dressed: she always wears an apron when cooking or cleaning. I couldn’t get photographs of them (yes, I’m such a technopeasant I just took photos of the screen) but they were proper full aprons.

The main character Charlie had by far the prettiest clothes of course: I like the fluttery chiffon sleeves on this blouse, even though I need a bit more kettle bell work before I’m happy with my arms being seen in public.

Although it’s a bit smart for me, I can see this blouse & skirt working really well for a vintage look in the office! What do you think?
