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, fashion history, 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, some fashion terms T to Y:

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!
