Children Fashion Designer: Helen Lee













I love the designs of the famous children's fashion designer, Helen Lee. The patterns she illustrated for were from the McCall's line and are usually cute, frilly, twirly dresses. I can always spot a Helen Lee pattern and will never leave one behind. She was the first children's designer to win the Coty American Fashion Critics Award, for her designs, in 1953. Here are a few of my photos. Four of them remain in my shop, which is surprising, they usually fly out the door, as soon as listed.
