I came across these scans last nite in my photo files, and after a lil' dig through my blog archive, I realised I never posted these lovely scans from How the West Was Worn for you. The tobacco trucks ride by here each day filled to the brim and the cotton boils are opening up to produce white speckled fields, just two of the budding signs that Fall is on its way. I would be tickled pink to incorporate any one of these beauties into my Autumn rotation, wouldn't you?Trudy Hall rodeo print rayon dress, 1940s
