For a spring wardrobe The Delineator magazine offers these 1936 guidelines.
"We suggest the following color scheme for the wardrobe shown here: For your coat - a navy basketweave woolen; for your jacket dress - navy heavy sheer with white pique; for your suit - a natural or gray menswear suiting of the soft cashmere type; for the print - silk crepe with an apricot-rust ground and a pale blue figure; for the evening an ice white satin dress with ruby accessories and ruby-colored bengaline wrap."
Welcome! I have this blog to share the treasures I find related to vintage sewing, and vintage fashion with occasional detours into whatever crosses my path. Everything I post is from some actual item I found. If you'd like to buy something you see contact me.
I sell sewing patterns for a living, you'll see the link below. Come on by!
