Genuine vintage 1940s children’s clothing can still be found in some antique stores. White baby gowns, little girl’s dresses, boys pant suits and an assortment of shoes are sought after by vintage loving parents. 1940s children’s clothing came in primary colors red, blue, white, yellow and green. Dresses were above the knee for toddlers and below the knee for big girls. A sash bow around the waist, a few simple ruffles around the puff sleeves and you have yourself an adorable 1940s children’s dress.

Boys clothes were mostly casual striped knit shirt with shorts or pants. For dress up time they wore a mini suit that looked like Dad’s. Shoes for boys embraced the penny loafer or saddle shoe. For girls it was the classic black mary jane with socks.
