#fridayfavourite Vintage forties gowns

The forties saw austerity in wedding gowns.  The war was on and the international trade of fabrics was at all time low.  So gowns were modest and simple in design.  Thankfully they left those sleeves behind in the forties (well OK they came back in the eighties so I expect to see them again!), but loving liquid like fabrics and sleeves gives us the Fairchild and the Vaughn to love.
