My 1940s favorites on Etsy

Gorgeousness at at all levels and impossible to resist to, this beauty sold at the beginning of the year from RaggedyThreads

What a delightful color combination and fun details in this summer cotton dress available from Millie B Vintage

Beloved stripes in my size! Sold by fluffypinkbunnies

Another one from them, also now sold, in a fun tropical print

1940's plaid pinafore style sun dress sold by Club Vintage

40s or 40s style cutie available from salvagelife

Gorgeous pink knit darlingness sold a little while ago from missmucho

Fantastic knit example from the 1940s, available from Snootie Seconds

I love this style of jacket, find it very flattering, the diagonal closure is great and so are those lapels. It would have fitted too, alas it sold to someone else, from readyfreddyvintage

Prance and Swagger (the name comes up again and again on my favorites shortlist) do it again with this wonderful bolero:

A great little one from the 1940s or 1950s , available from adelaideshomesewn

Another dress from them, truly beautiful, this navy crepe example is my size too, unfortunately I could never match the price tag. Absolutely stunning.

A vibrant yet elegant frock, now sold, from dandiesndames

Absolutely exquisite 40s frock available from Firefly Vintage

Available From Flapper Flock, a sweeter than sweetness evening gown:
