Sew It Yourself - Junior Skirt and Shawl

In my recent post of high school back-to-school fashion from the late 1940s was this lovely skirt and matching shawl or stole.

While you can't travel back in time to purchase this, you can sew this fashion trend of the late '40s using this pattern from Junior Vogue and 1948, which is currently in my shop:

I love the plaid version - now if only I were a junior size.... ;)


  1. OOoh! That skirt! Makes me wish I had some winter weight cozy fabric in my stash to make such a skirt out of!

    1. You and me both, Brigid! I simply love wool plaid. :)
