How true. Even in the 1960s, girls carefully planned that college wardrobe. About 20 years ago a friend gave me all her remaining cashmere sweaters and matching plaid pleated skirts from her circa 1962 college wardrobe. I still have - and still wear - one of the sweaters!

Wonderful stuff! That black & white check dress is MINE!

I'm sure you're right - being a college girl in those days would have implied a certain level of wealth, plus possibly some progressive ideas and attitudes?

I've got a Butterick pattern catalogue from 1936 with "A College Wardrobe For the Best Dressed Girl" you might enjoy:
