Vintage Fashion - A capsule Wardrobe 1942 style

I have capsule wardrobes on my mind!

Here is a nice little article from January 1942 ( Australian Women's Weekly), with a seven piece wardrobe in oatmeal linen, and over-checked linen with navy, blue, red and aqua. Perhaps like this colour scheme -

I don't know about wearing the same blouse every day - may if there were two? Of course this would have been wartime, so fabric would have been rationed - maybe the oatmeal linen was from actual linen feed bags?!
