Abstract

The $64,000 question in this issue is: ‘What type of face powder should you wear?’ Hardly Paris glamour, yet this journal provides fashion tips for Australasian women and offers free dress-making patterns for ‘glamorous frocks’ and children’s wear (and a guide for embroidering a frolicking lamb). Doris Day, Gregory Peck and Prince Edward rub shoulders with astrology, recipes, home-decorating ideas and the Heart to Heart column with its perennial tales of jilting, philandering and mystery. Advertisements offer books and classes in dress-making, an essential skill in Australia and New Zealand in the 1950s.
