What People Wore In 1930

What People Wore In 1930

Less and less people were sewing in the 1930s. This was the beginning of the ready-to-wear fashion age. However, times were scarce during this decade as well.

Since the 1930s was the decade of recovering from the 1929 Great Depression and stock market crash, companies started researching and implementing cheaper means of clothing manufacturing. New materials that were cheaper to process had been created during this decade to replace more expensive materials.

For example, rayon for women’s pantyhose had been replaced by nylon during this decade. Likewise, many of the dresses that used to be made out of silk were made out of different grades of rayon. The zipper became more widely used and replaced buttons during this decade as well (see towards end of article).
