Hello lovely readers! I had great intentions of actually writing a post for at least one of my three finished objects this weekend, but instead I came down with a cold. Yuck! Instead, I have some more great images from the 1942 Spring and Summer Sear's Catalog. I hope you enjoy and find some inspiration!
That red fabric with leaves is divine.
Apparently, there were lots of dresses that qualified as the Best Dresses in America for $4.98. The dress on the left still has a pretty full skirt for the early 40's, but since 1942 would have been the early war years for the US it seems reasonable to assume the most strict rations had not taken effect yet.
Doesn't she look ready to conquer the town in this coat? This coat wasn't an inexpensive purchase at $19.98. According to an inflation calculator, this cost would cost you approximately $281 in modern USD.
Readers, which are your favorites? I'd love to hear your opinions. I do have lots more images to share in time as the catalog is over 1000 pages in length. ( Though I doubt most of us want to see images for replacement farm equipment parts or other machinery.) I will definitely post the fabric and sewing section next!
