Mother's Drawings

My Mom did these drawings of 'fashion plates' I would guess in the mid to late 1940's to early 1950's, when she was an adolescent. She was very proud to say, "hand drawn by Judy, not traced." She can refresh my memory, but I think she copied the images from girly magazines of the time. If you see the whole notebook of drawings, you can see her working out how to draw hands and feet. I think the illustrations are awesome!
