Summer Promenade Costumes from McCall's Magazine - 1902

I just got some lovely fashion plates that we get to enjoy. Some have no information but these are from McCall's Magazine, August 1902. The outfits are each two pieces, waists or jackets with their skirts. I hope you click twice to see the details. Try to imagine sewing!

  1. Obviously, the meaning of the word 'costume' in 1902 is not the same as it is today.

  2. I would imagine those hats are really heavy. Those are some beautiful oufits though.
