The Evacuee Collection

By 1941 rationing for clothing was a very real part of life and children’s clothing had to be practical and hard wearing – this meant the same garment needed to be suitable for everyday and special occasions. In a slight departure from the other collections we feature two uniforms – that would have been worn by adults – to show how important the different roles at home were to the war effort.

Evacuee Girl £23

This little A line dress is a simple version of an adult style. Style it with a cardigan and roll brimmed hat to dress it up. Tie ribbons in her hair to complete the look.

Size 9-10
