I Love these ladies as I've said before they flash me back to MY past and my mother's clothes. I guess mine were minitures of these. Will you draw some teen girls in poodle skits I wonder?

Happy anniversary! I love this era and these ladies are so reminiscent of the dress patterns that were around at that time - I remember when I was little (in the 70s) my mum still had patterns from the 50s in her collection!

Perfect choice to go with the stripes for their outfits- I can almost hear the dinner party conversations about their dresses when they are out painting the town red!

Ok I love this. I'm a big fan of retro fashion as well as the fashion illustrations of that era (40s-60s) when it was mostly illustrations used in ads for clothing, not photos. And fab outfit and shoes.
