1940s shirts- Blouse colors were usually a plain white, cream, pastel, blue, red or black. Small plaids, checks and colorful stripes were also common. Blue and white or red and white stripes made women appear faithfully patriotic. #vintage #1940s
Tangled Forest Necktie - Screen Printed Microfiber Tie. This necktie features my original pen and ink illustration, reproduced through screen printing. The image is ultra-intricate and is reminiscent of illuminated books and manuscripts.
1940s Blouses- After the war years with restrictions lifted, women’s fashion turned more delicate again with the addition of lace insets, ruffles, pintucks, tonal embroidery, pleats and gatherings. They looked more like Victorian era blouses than the prior few decades. #vintage #1940s #fashionhistory
