Eye Candy - Housewife Fashions 1950

Just a little eye candy for your Tuesday afternoon.  These Housewife Fashions are from the Australian Women's Weekly, Feburary 10, 1950, as reported by the Fashion Editor Mary Hordon and sketched by Dorothea Johnston. I love the dress with the red bodice and purple and blue skirt, and the sugar-pink skirt with the big patch pockets.

The outfits on this page are all for dressing up while giving dinners at home - so fancy!  I think the "white pin-spotted muslin redingote" is a gorgeous idea over a plain black dress.  Would you ever dress up this much at home?


  1. So pretty. I can hardly imagine wearing those outfits out, let alone at home. Such glamour! x

  2. Amazing, would love a bit of 1950s housewife pazazz!

  3. Design allows human beings to effectively communicate ideas and information. It cuts across a wide range of applied arts from fashion design to industrial design.
