Slumber caps from the 1940s
Extremely glam ladies wearing crocheted slumber caps, from a 1940s copy of Needlewoman and Needlecraft magazine.
"Portraying charming slumber caps, perfect for keeping your curls or waves in order and admirably suited to wearing these days when you are never sure how often it will be necessary to get out of bed to go to your shelter. Easily laundered, they will give endless wear, and you can choose your favourite colour from large range of Coats' Mercer-Crochet".
I love the very British stiff-upper-lip expectation of still putting on a neat, well-groomed appearance, even when running in terror from Jerry.
