I came across a color scan of the 1939 Sears catalogue photo that is also pictured (in black and white) in the Everyday Fashions of the Thirties. The page describes two popular color schemes during the year. I've always wondered what exactly they looked like (since I had only seen the black and white versions)! Aren't they great?
I really like the 'American Beauty' color scheme. I've been wanting to incorporate more of a raspberry color into my sewn wardrobe. Over the summer my mom gave me a great polka dot top in a bright raspberry shade (it's a bit more raspberry than pink as it appears in this photo) and I really like it:
I would love to find some fabric in the reddish blue similar to the 'American Beauty' above. I, of course, also love the Wintergreen color! Which is your favorite?
