I find it fascinating to see that the reader is reassured that this hemline won't be reaching the "revolutionary" lengths that were apparently en vogue in 1930 and 1947. In spite of the headline that this is the U.S. hemline rising, the length is incredibly demure by today's standards. The style is timeless. You could walk down the street in one of those suits today without much fanfare, in part because modern designers have learned to borrow so heavily from the past. I love the shoes and hats! Being an hourglass shape myself, I gravitate to the 40's silhouette. That Hattie Carnegie number would suit me to a T.
