During the 1940's the top fashions included women's swing dresses, wide hats, swirling skirts, evening gowns, and blouses. After World War II ended in 1945 women began tailoring the men's pants for themselves for comfort during working hours. Tweed, cotton, fur, wool and silk were very popular in the 1940's.
