1940's Sweet, Classy & Sophisticated Suits

Here are two wonderful patterns from the 1940's. Both suits are beautifully tailored. I just love them long slender skirts, although I only envision 6' tall women wearing them, not someone like me that is only 5' tall!

  1. I am with you on envisioning them on someone taller... At 5'3" I cannot pull off that long lean look either ;) It would take some serious stilettos with platforms, and we just don't want to go there, do we?
