    I found these 1940s overalls last week at an antique mall and was really tickled. Even though women were starting to wear pants in the 1930s, they really weren't completely accepted until WWII when so many women began to wear pants to work in every day. If you look in wartime magazines, you see this garment over and over, especially on women working on farms. Aren't they cute, though!
