I think that this was a line from a novelty song of the 1940’s or 1950’s. There are several of you who I know specialize in those decades. Can you help me out?
It’s 30 degrees Fahrenheit warmer (hotter!) today!! So, time for a contrast in clothing. More little cuties – these short shorts are from the mid-’50s, made by Bobbie Brooks. Remember the swimsuit I showed a few days ago with the metal zip in the center back? Well, these have the same feature (notice in this back view). You can see a hanging loop peeking out, too. Such attention to detail, even in a simple everyday garment!
They also have a high waist which, in my opinion, is much more flattering than the super-low-rise stuff that’s been on the market for several years. Gingham checks have been popular for decades and were really big in the ’40’s, ’50’s, and early ’60’s. I really like the blue edging around the waistline, too.
Back then, they made lots of really cute play-suits and play-clothes of all kinds. And, they were really nicely tailored in good quality fabrics, often with super-fun prints. Vintage clothing always makes me smile! Can’t get too much of that . . . . . . . . .
