Skirt Patterns: 1930s, 40s, 50s & 60s
Full of glamour and charmingly attractive collection of our finest skirts that you won’t be able to resist. We are not skirting around this! After the Great Depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s, when hemlines again dropped to mid-calf to floor-length and outfits became more modest. In the 1940s, skirts (and outfits in general) became even more sombre in nature, with all the restrictions in clothing during the Second World War. Utilitarian fashion was the go-to look, while cheaper fabrics gained ground and simple A-line or straight skirts were in demand. During the 1950s, fashion returned to its more extravagant roots, with Dior and his “New Look”. Voluminous skirts with his A-line look, and pencil skirts in Dior’s H-line were adopted by women in the western world. The true revolution though happened in the next decade, in the 1960s, with Mary Quant’s mini skirt. For the first time, women were given the freedom to choose the length of their skirt but the mini length was there to stay!
