So obviously there was no 29 February in 1942 (there was in 1940 and 1944 however), so there is no news today. But here is something cute instead.
I have written previously of detachable white collars and how they were popular during wartime as an aid to help being seen during the blackout.
They were also used to dress up plain dresses, and were not made of fabric, but knitted or crocheted.
Here are two pretty versions that could be made at home.
Aren’t they sweet, and doesn’t that first model look like Ava Gardner?
Happy leap year,
