A couple of years ago my wonderful grandparents moved from Cheshire to Suffolk, and in the process some wonderful things were unearthed.
One of these wonderful things was a drawing book that belonged to my grandmother when she was 13. It’s jam packed with imagined outfits, arguably the fantasy WIWT of 1951.
It’s a joy to flick through – especially when you come across the notion of ‘the perfect housewife’ and a rather smutty Christmas design. Holly shaped knickers, anyone?
Here’s hoping this never gets mislaid! I know my grandchildren (who will be indoctrinated into loving clothes) will enjoy gazing upon the designs as much as I do x
