For both #weddingwednesday and @fash_rev some wartime ingenuity this morning. During a period when cloth was in short supply, make do and mend became part of the U.K. government’s propaganda campaign giving rise to all sorts of refashioned objects. On the left a wedding dress made from parachute silk which is not as soft and silky as the name suggests @imperialwarmuseums & on the right a candlewick bedspread that was repurposed into a winter coat #fashrev #refashion #repurposed #practicaldesign #parachutesilk #wartimefashion #1940s #1940sdress #wartimewedding #weddingdress #whitewedding #bedspread #candlewick #upcycle #dresshistory #fashionhistory

Todays outfit is a new style to me since I normally don't wear pencilskirts. This one is a 1950's one with pockets that I bought from a private person in Malmö a while back (🏷️100 SEK). The dusty rose knitted jumper is a thriftfind from this winter (🏷️100 SEK at Emmaus). I find it really hard to date homemade knits, but this one I'm pretty sure it's 40's or 50's. With that 40's replika saddles from Rocket originals.

I love the illustrations of the 30s & 40s so detailed and beautifully done. These from 1944 are a perfect examples of war time eveningwear. Both show versions of the popular pegged skirt worn both long and yikes short ! Short was now acceptable and common for evening. At right an all over sequin sweater at left a plain blouse with huge glittery pin . Also popular was the snood for evening trimmed with flowers and sequins. Flowers were worn in the hair and were a popular accessory.

Another from the weekend at @nt_lymepark ❤️ the house was absolutely stunning and rich in Jacobian history 😍😍😍 wearing my new favourite day dress by @seamstressofb 💃

The dress by Traina - Norrell is of natural color cashmere jersey accented with slightly glittered black raised embroidery. Early 1940s, sold at Neiman Marcus. Natural color costumes with all black accessories as shown here became a favorite trend in 1942. Fur was still widely worn during wartime but the whole look was much more streamlined and spare becoming more so as the war progressed.

Here she is!!! 1940s AMAZING deep purple hat with a huge feather and diamante stud. This is absolutely phenomenal, I believe it's deadstock as it's in such good condition and looks to of hardly been worn, no wear or no marks. This is one that's hard to part with but she is going to look amazing. It would fit any size head due to be a topper.

Back to the 40s today. Wearing an early 40s soft cotton day dress I purchased last week. The big 40s-50s straw purse I tried to sell several times in the past but it never found any interest, which makes me pretty happy - as I love using it now.

Black means lowkey elegance, which I always return to. Today is a very simple look. 🖤 Im wearing a 1940s dress with strong shoulders and draped details styled with a 1930s home made green embroided belt, 1920s spider brooch, 1930s lovedove brooch and a 1960s snake bracelet from @alluringdoorsvintage. Im wearing one of my new to me 1930s hat and 1930s hat pin (from @dazzerlingdarling) I found at the Copenhagen Vintage Fair last sunday. I love its wide asymmetrical brim. The red hairflower is from @pin_up_curl.
