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?
