Description


The Voice of Fashion contains a comprehensive selection of women's styles from rare originals of 14 magazines published from 1900 through 1906. The 79 patterns in this book include afternoon, evening, ball, and wedding gowns; home and maternity wear; suits and blouses for day and business; lingerie; outer coats; and outfits for riding, golf, and other sports. Each pattern has a fashion plate, plus instructions for drafting and assembly. Additional fashion columns and plates supplement the information on fabrics, trims, and construction. A substantial glossary explains period fabric names and dressmaking terms. The patterns can be enlarged either by projection, or by drafting with the Diamond Cutting System used with the original magazines.
