I’m currently in some kind of early 1900s mood, preparing for an up-coming event this weekend.
So I thought it would be great to tell you a bit about one of the book I own on this period.
Everyday fashions 1909-1920 – As pictured in Sears Catalogs by Joanne Otan.
Like my 1910s underbust long line corset.
I also want to recreate on of these petticoats and bust ruffles one day.
All the diferent kinds of dresses in this book was great inspiration and help to me, when making my 1913s walking dress.
I also really like the childrens sections of the book.
Guess this did’t turned out qute like a real review. I couldn’t even give you any cons :-).
Anyhow, I do really love this book, and thinks everyone intersting in early 20th century fashion should buy it.
It is such a good inspiration and gives such a clear visual of the transistion in fashion between edwardian curves and the new 20s flair.
It’s a great book to own and to use as reference for what people realy wore at the time, for anyone who loves historical fashion. And it’s part of a series – so you can collect them all.
