Everyday Fashions of the Fifties: As Pictured in Sears Catalogs by JoAnne Olian


This scrupulously researched, meticulously rendered collection spotlights multiple generations of a family for each decade of the twentieth century. Apparel includes everything from ankle-length tennis outfits and men's formal wear of the 1910s to military outfits from both World Wars, high-fashion suits and dresses in the post WWI years, and wedding finery spanning several decades.
These immediately useable illustrations have a host of applications for fashion and costume designers, fashion historians, and anyone looking for fashion images to use in art and craft projects. Informative notes on the costumes complete an outstanding collection documenting nearly 100 years of costume history.
