EDACC40-1151 - 1944 Hand Bags Pattern. 5 Stylish handbags to complete your 1940s costume or 1940s theatrical costume. Through the mid-1930s, the natural waistline was often accompanied by emphasis on an empire line. Short bolero jackets, capelets, and dresses cut with fitted midriffs or seams below the bust increased the focus on breadth at the shoulder. By the late '30s, emphasis was moving to the back, with halter necklines and high-necked but backless evening gowns with sleeves.[2[7 Evening dresses with matching jackets were worn to the theatre, nightclubs, and elegant restaurants. Skirts remained at mid-calf length for day, but the end of the 1930s Paris designers were showing fuller skirts reaching just below the knee; this practical length (without the wasteful fullness) would remain in style for day dresses through the war years. Other notable fashion trends in this period include the introduction of the ensemble (matching dresses or skirts and coats) and the handkerchief skirt, which had many panels, insets, pleats or gathers. The clutch coat was fashionable in this period as well; it had to be held shut as there was no fastening. By 1945, adolescents began wearing loose, poncho-like sweaters called sloppy joes. Full, gathered skirts, known as the dirndl skirt, became popular around 1945. Gloves were "enormously important" in this period.[9 Evening gowns were accompanied by elbow length gloves, and day costumes were worn with short or opera-length gloves of fabric or leather. 1930's fashion trends were driven by designers and Hollywood stars such as Lana Turner, Lauren Bacall, Anita Page, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Great for Stylish Thirties - 1930s Fashion, 1940's Fashion, WWII Fashion.
