Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Choosing a Dress for a Tall Slim Figure

In an earlier post, Ruth Wyeth Spears tackled the challenges of a person with a full figure when wearing the new slim lines. In this post, Ruth addresses the tall, thin figure, a type that also needs careful dressing choices. I wouldn't have thought it necessary, but as usual, Ruth makes her points clearly! The bottom line? Avoid the "gaunt" look by softening the joints and bones.

So pay close attention, those of you who are skinny - aim for soft lines that produce grace and rhythm. :)
