Post World War 2 wedding fashion - Amazingly, the bride's mother managed to find a 70 yard roll of this faille despite the rationing. Neat!
“My Marine and I planned to marry in January 1947,” explains Betty Gaunder, St. Joseph, Michigan. “What I didn’t plan on was the shortage of yard goods even that long after the war. Mom loved to sew, so when we found a huge roll of cream-colored faille, she decided to buy the entire 70 yards! “As you can see, she fashioned my wedding gown, the four bridesmaids’ dresses and one for the flower girl. Each dress had a different colored bustle to make it distinctive. This began a wonderful marriage.”

Once the Chelsea-girl look caught on in London and models like Twiggy rose to superstardom, the miniskirt made its way to the U.S. In 1967, ABC aired a television special called The Mini-Skirt Rebellion, which introduced the skimpy style to all Americans. To their parents’ dismay, teens embraced the trend. If only they’d known hot pants were on their way just three years later.
