1930's Depression Fashion - Hemlines go down with the dollar !

At the beginning of 1930, women’s hemlines fell all the way down to the ankle,
their necklines became lowered, and their torsos were under their shoulders.
In the 1930s, skirts were also in mode.
Patterns from Vogue and McCalls became extremely popular,
encouraging home industry among young women.
Upper skirt yokes werefashionable ,which showed a v shape going
from one hip to the center of the yoke to the other hip.
