A few short, gossipy paragraphs from a Beverly Hills literary magazine printed early in the American home front experience concerning women war-workers, fabric rationing and the long-standing debate between ready-made uniforms vs custom-made uniforms:

"Of course any woman works better if she feels she is dressed becomingly, and at present we all need to pull together at our very best - so work it out for yourself."

"'Listen, dear,' said the salesgirl, 'I wouldn't buy a uniform today if I was you. We've got a much cuter collection coming next week - more your type.'"
