WORKING OVERALLS: Patterns 5125, 5159 & 5183 for Men & Women (1926)

This postcard is A5 in size (148 x 210mm), printed on quality 350gsm card with a glossy finish. The reverse side is printed with a pattern description.

These three patterns came together in one illustration in Madame Weigel's Journal of Fashion in August 1926.

For the first time, domestic practicality and togetherness is shown, although the man looks more used to such work than the well-heeled woman.
