Summary
World War II has ended and American women are shedding their old clothes for the gorgeous new styles. Voluminous layers of taffeta and tulle, wasp waists, and beautiful colors, all so welcome after years of sensible styles and strict rationing. Jeanne Brink and her sister Peggy both had to weather every tragedy the war had to offer: Jeanne without the fiancé she's counted on, Peggy now a widowed mother, both living with Peggy's mother-in-law in a grim mill town. But despite their gray pasts they long for a bright future, Jeanne by creating stunning dresses for her clients with the help of Peggy's brilliant sketches. Together, they are able create amazing fashions and a more prosperous life than they'd ever dreamed of before the war. But sisterly love can sometimes turn into sibling jealousy. Always playing second fiddle to her sister, Peggy yearns to make her own mark. But as Peggy and Jeanne soon discover, the future is never without its surprises, ones that have the potential to make, or break, their dreams
