You might have noticed that pinafores are back in style. How many times has this garment been revived in some shape or form? In 1941, Vogue Patterns brought out not one but two different versions. The magazine copy for the one on the right reads: “Beloved by our grandmothers, yet this-season modern and crisp as a cracker.”
Note the head gear on the left. It’s a head scarf tied in the “We Can Do It” Rosie the Riveter style. However, this magazine came out in early 1941, months before the US entered World War Two. Perhaps Rosie was following current styles, rather than setting them.
Maybe I’m out of sync, but the pinafore is another fashion trend (along with the jumpsuit) that will not find a way into my closet.
