Different types of fancy dress and other pages from the Language of Fashion

Here are 12 more scans from The Language of Fashion, a fashion dictionary published in 1939. I found the “different types of fancy dress” most interesting in these pages, and funny that it includes a Disney drawing of a dwarf (from Snow White) to illustrate and define a Dwarf Costume. I hope this helps in your clothing identification and description efforts, or as a piece of fashion history!
