1940s Skirt History: All around pleating was very common. Knife pleats, inverted pleats and box pleats were the most popular because they kept the skirt flat and smooth over the hips while adding volume at the hem. The overall shape was still A-line but pleating added a bit more swing to a woman’s step, a sign of post war joy. #vintage #1940s
