Mid-Week Inspiration: 1940's Bandeau Tops

1940's bandeau tops
1940's bandeau tops I found these illustrations of bandeau tops on flickr from a July 1947 issue of Charm. I want to make and wear everyone of the styles.
It reads: Bare Economy. Make yourself a gay assortment of halters to wear with slacks, shorts, and dirndl skirts the sunny summer long. All you need is a remnant of square of cotton and a few well placed stitches.

I have a bunch of my grandmother's old scarves, and I never wear them (I dont like them around my neck and they slip out of my hair). Maybe I should make one of those tops!

Thanks doll,
