Spring Fashions from 1925

From a graceful era Needlework Magazine shows us several outfits from March, 1925. This includes Porch-Wear, a Smart Blouse Thats' Easy To Make, Becoming Lines for the Matron and of course, The Popular Button-down-the-Front Dress. And the patterns were 12¢ each.
Our cover girl is wearing a "Boudoir Jacket, with it's Matching Bandeau" it's "Easy to Make, Dainty as a Flower and Altogether Adorable". Wouldn't you agree?

  4. These are so obviously very easy to sew. Isn't it interesting that fashion and technology converged during that decade: easy fashion to sew and the newer easy to use sewing machines. It's no wonder that there was a huge explosion in 'home ec' courses for all!

  5. Style developing for many is a extravagant profession to be in. It covers favor, styles and style. But who can really take a developer career? What abilities are required for this job
