What kind of fashion was worn for Poland children around the 1940's?

Depends on their class, and whether they lived in the countryside or the city. Poor kids would wear peasant clothes such as felt boots, untucked collarless shirts, pants held up with string (or skirts embroidered with flowers if female) and flat caps (or a headscarf for girls). Middle class kids would wear plus-fours (or a sensible wool dress for girls), knitted sweaters, lace-up boots, and sometimes white and blue sailor suits. At home we have a photo of my grandmother as a girl in a sailor dress

Understand that there weren't a lot of options in Poland at the time.
A global war and the aftermath and all that.
I used to know an older Polish woman. She used to talk about how her mother would sew clothing for the family out of discarded nazi flags.
