Twill Weave to Yarns

Twill Weave to Yarns
This entry is part 2 of 21 in the series The Language of Fashion - 1939 Fashion Dictionary

Almost at the end of this fashion dictionary! I’m a bit relieved but also a little sad. I’ve learned SO much about vintage clothing identification and fashion terminology, but this is one of the most boring things ever to scan, because it’s like… reading and scanning a dictionary 😛 When I finish with this self imposed project, feel free to call me a total weirdo.

Covered in these pages:

Tyrolean type of costume, underwear – defined as underclothes (I find it interesting how underwear is distinct from undies – defined as lingerie – short for undergarments), types of veils, a long list of the various types of velvet, vests, waistbands, weaves (including pile weave and herringbone weave), types of wigs, types of wools (merino, pashm, etc.), wraps, and finishing off with the first page of Y which gets into the various types of yarns!

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 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.
