I gave you just a tiny taste of some of the darlingness in the early 1950s Japanese pattern book. Here are a few more.
Lets look at the suggested fabrics:
There are clearly different sections in the book, with different styling. I think the above fashions were ladies fashions, and these are junior frocks:
Aren’t they so lovely and young and fresh?
There are children’s fashions too:
I find it very interesting that the kids look Japanese (or at least fashion drawing Japanese), while the adults are either Caucasion or very generic any-ethnicity.
And then there are these ladies. Who simply don’t have half their faces
The simple dresses are livened by lovely details, and the beautiful fabrics.
I hope you enjoyed them! More in a few days!
