The Silent Three

May 11, 2008

Meet the Silent Three- schoolgirl comic book heroes who appeared in their own strip in the story paper “The Schoolfriend” which ran from about 1950 to 1963. And, if this Advance pattern from around 1940 didn’t pre-date the Silent Three, I would swear that their subtle style (because of course no one will notice you sneaking around and breaking into houses in a floor length hooded robe and black mask) was a major inspiration for it:

I love old bathing suit patterns, and the suit on this one is quite cute (not sure about the Mrs Mop headwear) but the beach coat looks unfortunately rather like something one of the Silent Three would wear to go undercover at the beach…

    I agree, the suit looks super cute but that coat just looks… uncomfortable. I can’t imagine wearing that to the pool or the beach. I’m ready to break a sweat just thinking about it!

    Can’t see why you would cover everything up, then keep the legs exposed….full length on some English summer days might come in handy!
    Love the gateway link…thanks.
