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?
