“I took my measurements before and after, and this garment took 1 inch off both my waist and hips, and well as overall smoothing and some lifting of the derriere! Well they looked great, but I’d been through this before – would they stand the wearing test?? The answer is, yes!”

“I love fashion and costume history from the 18th century until the 1950s, but the Edwardian era and 1930s are my favorites. Fashion history has been a life-long passion for me. I began sewing when I was around eight years old and started studying fashion history and collecting vintage clothing when I was around fourteen years old.”

Dressing in the ’40s
