I believe in vintage fashion, red lips, and a good history book

I believe in vintage fashion, red lips, and good books

Hemline Quarterly is updated on a semi-regular basis by me, a history grad who has collected vintage clothing, accessories, & sewing patterns, with articles discussing the styles & fashions of the past.  Focusing on Western fashion from the 1920’s up until the 1990’s, I aim not only at describing & analyzing the history of fashion, but at bringing it to life.  I’ve been slowly working my way through the decades of fashion to give a broad overview of the basic trends and styles, but I hope in the future to focus maybe on showing off vintage sewing projects or re-creating classic vintage looks.  However, I began my graduate studies in Library and Information Science last fall, which definitely makes consistent posting a challenge. Anyway, thanks for checking out my blog, and feel free to leave a comment if there is a certain era or type of fashion you’d like to see featured here.

Note: the beautiful illustration in my header is by Enoch Bolles, one of my favorite artists and a true pioneer in what later became referred to as “pin-up” art.  There are a ton of amazing examples of his work here.

  1. I forgot to mention this when I dropped by before (October 1st ish), but you would probably like to know about The Art Deco Society of California http://www.artdecosociety.org/ as you would have a lot to contribute with them. Check me out and drop me a line.
