I promised another blog of 1930s fashion via McCall's magazine, and here it is! This is from the May 1935 issue of the magazine, just one month after the first McCall's spread I posted about here. Click the photos to enlarge them.
|Evening wear. An emphasis on oversize collars and lace--the center dress is lace, and the black inset dress has a matching lace coat.|
|Holy ruffles! But I rather like the ruffled cape on the third from left. To quote the copy: "Little capes of lace cannot be withstood." No, they cannot.|
|Gah! I'll take the first three dresses on the left, and the last green one. Loving the use of "air holes" and cape sleeves to help keep the wearer cool.|
|Oh, that sweet little blue suit on the right!|
|I love the nautical navy linen dress, and the gray and red striped one.|
