Summer Dresses - 1927

Now that summer has officially arrived, how about a look at summer dresses through the decades this week and next? Time to pull out some of my really old magazines for this series! Here, dresses for the heat of summer from 1927. It is interesting to note that daytime dresses had long sleeves. Sleeveless styles were only worn for evening.

Oh wow! Love those! The Lace dress with the under-slip has got to be my favorite. Good bit of info in this post. I didn't realize that short sleeves were just for evenings. Nifty.
