How great to see these 50s fashions. I played for hours with paper dolls cut from pattern books in the 50s by my cousin. They really take me back.

How come I don't have a waist like that?

This is a terrific way to keep us all in suspenders about what you're working on right now. And i can see an 'M', what fun. K.

I love those fashion pages. Batwing sleeves were all the rage back then.

I need a girdle to get back into my retro dresses!
A heavy-duty one too......

I agree with all the comments. Batwing sleeves were all the rage then. The fabric description is interesting too (stiff and hard on the hands).
