Sisters

A tribute to sisters everywhere - then, and now.

Kid sisters with 1920's-era wavy bobs and drop-waist dresses. (via Cassie's Tale Vintage)
All-grown-up sisters, sitting on a hillside. Love that loose-fitting sweater with the flared cuffs and open neckline! Although this photo probably dates to the 1930s or 1940s, we think the sweater would look pretty vintage-hip on the streets of New York today. (via Cassie's Tale Vintage)

Another great example of sisters with matching short, wavy hairdos from the 1920s-30s era.  Note the white Peter Pan collar on the left, and the pretty lace collar on the right. These styles were not exclusive to the United States -- this photo was taken in Latvia in 1930. (via Cassie's Tale Vintage)

Serious sisters with teeny waists (thanks to corsets),long black skirts, & tucked-in white blouses. This fashion was typical of the early Edwardian era, c. 1900s. (via Clancy's Classics)
