1930s Sewing notions, fabrics, laces, silks, and the last page of the Chicago Mail Order Company 1935 Catalog (summer)
This entry is part 2 of 17 in the series 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company Catalog

Here are the last 11 pages from the Summer 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company catalog. They’re filled with advertisements for silks, viole, pre-made lace for dresses, tahiti prints, polka dot printed fabrics, all manner of silk fabrics and crepes… and more. The last few pages are in color and advertise “Hollywood Dress prints”, “Sanforized prints”, “woven dot Swiss”, organdie prints, “Pepperelle viole”, batiste, “quality silk flat crepe prints”, and more. Do you notice that zippers haven’t been advertised in this catalog at all? This could be useful for dating 1930s clothes…

Below are the last of my scans from this 1930s catalog:

About The Author

Jessica Kay Murray

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
