how did they look in the 1930's?
In the 1930's, women's clothes were often long and sleek. Women's skirts often had their hemlines at mid-calf for daytime wear. A skirt would widen from the hip, while a full skirt would make a slim waist without bringing out the hips. A long skirt would usually be trimmed with ruffles, flare with flounces, but would most likely be simple with a long, slender shape. For evening wear, skirts would have ankle or floor-length hemlines.
