Woman's Home Companion 1910

Woman's Home Companion, March 1910
The Fashion Department
Conducted by Grace Margaret Gould

These are scans of a magazine page I have framed and hanging on my wall. On the back is an advertisement for Himalaya Cloth "an exact reproduction of the fashionable rough silks" along with drawings of these two dresses.

While the S-curve corset looks incredibly uncomfortable and I thank the Gods that I live in the age of cotton knit I have always loved the fashions of the Gibson Girl/ Edwardian era. 1910 of course is towards the end of this time and with the beginning of WW1 more realistic, comfortable styles took hold.
