For the final installment of my Bestways Initial Transfer Book (except for the ads, which are pretty fabulous!), here is the cutest section: the children’s clothes.
They may be children’s garments, but I would happily wear most of this stuff!
Like both those jackets. (aren’t the pocket button details divine?)
Oooh…the short coat is grass green! Yum!
Note the mentions of the very fashionable cut-on ‘Magyar’ sleeves, and the contrasting sleeves set into ‘ordinary armholes’.
The next page features a few more teens in covetable clothes, and some proper children in sports bloomers and an extremely scant gymnastics pinafore frock.
This is ‘an exceedingly smart walking dress in wool marocain’. Cunning belt detail, and great hat and parasol!:
And here are the funny sports clothes. Looking at these, I can’t help thinking how modern society would consider initials and names for children ill-advised for safety reasons.
Last of all, a little girl with a teddy (with its own monogram) and a lovely blouse. Oh, I do like 1920s blouses!
If you enjoyed this you can see the lingerie section of the book here, and the sportswear section here.
They did mirror adult styles for children.
