Vogue First of the Month Collection, February 1947

Judging by the size and style of this publication it was intended as a supplement to the big Vogue pattern catalogues displayed in fabric stores.

Though these patterns were released before Christian Dior sprang his New Look on a waiting world, it is clear that fashion changes were already in the air.  The lines of these suits are noticeably less angular than their wartime counterparts, the waists are clearly indented, and the skirts are longer and fuller than would have been seen a couple of years earlier.  The two trim and ladylike models in the picture are looking forward to the fifties rather than back to earlier in the decade.
