Synopsis: The decade following World War II saw lifestyles and fashion take on a relaxed note—with blue jeans, sleeveless blouses, full skirts, and Bermuda shorts among the popular choices of apparel. Even on more formal occasions, a casual elegance was apparent: in women's sack chemises and dresses featuring large floral prints and in men's "wash-and-wear" suits, corduroy jackets, and slacks. Artist Tom Tierney captures the spirit of the fifties with this carefully researched, accurately detailed paper doll collection. Ten dolls depict three generations of a family—an elderly couple, their daughter and son-in-law, and six grandchildren. An eleventh figure is shown in a bridegroom's formal attire.
The family's wardrobe includes 31 costumes—ranging from beach wear and comfortable lounging outfits to dress suits for men and women and elegant formal attire for a family wedding. Outfits for the children generally follow adult styles, while a hula hoop and Davy Crockett coonskin hat typify amusements and fads of the period.
