When a woman went on holiday in the summer 
during the 1940s, her wardrobe consisted of 
morning, afternoon and evening wear. 
Featured in this film are typical rayon afternoon 
dresses snoods and hats of the period. 

Bodices and wide brim hats were everywhere ! 
Of course there's an engagement in the air!

This film displays some lovely evening dress examples and beauty looks of the 1940's.
We see a waltz time skirt with black lace inserts. " Look at the spunky shoulders ! " 
" Jane has a new dress too, her skirt is made of layers and layers of pink and grey net !
