Eye candy courtesy of McCall’s Style News for October 1929- the Paris Fashion Number. I love the strong composition of the front cover (above) and the use of what is effectively shades of just three colours- black, white and yellow.
Although I do own a few 1920’s McCall patterns, they are nowhere near as complex or utterly gorgeous as the ones in this supplement. Take a look at the first page of the supplement below…
What glorious flounces! I particularly like the two designs at the bottom for evening coats, complete with hood, and even more flounces, naturally… They look as if they would be incredibly cosy for winter lounging wear made in velvet.
