It’s that time of year again. Time to bring out the warmer clothes if you are in a place headed for fall and winter. During the war years, closed factories and shortages sometimes meant figuring out new ways to use old clothing to keep warm during cold months. Now, it was over 100°F this weekend here in Texas, but I know that there are many of you who are gearing up for cold weather. Maybe some of these hints from the October 1943 issue of Woman’s Day will spark some new ideas of your own. I’ve included the entire article, but there are some zoomed in photos afterwards so you can more easily read the captions.
I’d also like to note that this magazine is old and it’s hard to take pictures because it it doesn’t lay flat due to binding issues. I hope you enjoy them nonetheless.
