Catalog Sunday

This Sunday I have denim. All denim all the time.
Well, the time of the mid 30s to mid 40s.

Chicago Mail order 1935

Montgomery Wards 1935

  1. I just love Catalog Sunday! Thank you so much for posting all these great photos.

  2. Wow, looking at the women's selections it's no wonder they wore men's clothes. Women's overalls: 2.2oz cloth, men's: 8oz! I do like the fitted bibs on some of the women's garments.

  3. Yeah, the women's denim was pretty skimpy. No more than a medium weight till in most cases.

  4. I love those men's bandtop jeans. I'm planning to make my gardener husband some work pants and those would look gorgeous on him! Does anyone know of a good base pattern I could work off of?
