Masquerade Patterns -1920s - The Pictorial Review

Aaannnddd I'm back! The computer and I are both fixed and fine. So to celebrate I have some real goodies for you. These are from a booklet published by The Pictorial Review Company titled Masquerade Patterns. It is undated, but I was able to date a few of the patterns to 1925-27. (If you can get closer please share). These are just wonderful and I'm going to show you them all. I wish I had these actual patterns, you are on your own for that. But I hope you get some inspiration for your own costumes this season!


  1. WOW! SO neat! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have some actual 1926 fancy dress patterns - (here: http://vandehistoric.blogspot.com/2010/07/1926-fancy-dress-patterns.html)
    I haven't made up any - but they do look like such fun

  3. neato! Almost inspires me to be a 1920s pirate for halloween this year.

  4. My what great Illustrations. I love things from the 20s. They had such flair. Thank you so much for posting all of them.
