noticed that you had a bit here on Gents' clothing, so I'm going to
stimulate some of the ladies into contributions. As a MM
* , these are the items of ladies' clothing
that I remember. Most are from the 1950s:
A coat that I think was usually made of wool.
A jacket or short coat which sometimes had a pleat up the back and usually
went down to no more than waist level.
Generally, this was made of wool and
fastened by means of wooden toggles.
A summer coat that had no
buttons, or perhaps had a frog-fastening, or one large button at the
waist, or a belt.
That's what it was, and usually just below knee-level
Pencil Skirt A
skirt that hugged the figure and had a pleat or slit at the back.
A dress of various materials, generally with a 'A Line' shape.
A coat, from memory fastened with one button near the top."
"I'll be quite happy to see an y
amendments or any adjustments to the above."
