VTT 16 - Summer Fashion

This magazine of Handicrafts and dresses is dated June 15th, 1921. Let's see if there are any good ideas for our summer wardrobe.


 

This is a full view of the patterns in the magazine.



Aprons for the big and small.



Summer dresses and coats.


I think they look so modern in the drawings, and look how the little girl is running in her new checkered dress.


Perhaps you should crochet a lace for a chemisette or a summer nightgown? The modern girl would use the lace for a top for clubbing.



Summer walking coats and a travel coat, with hats, naturally. We want to protect our lovely dresses from dust and rain. You can click all pictures to enlarge.



Lignerie for big and small girls.



Summer hats. The little girl on the right top corner (sewing instructions for her hat below her picture) makes me think of Milly-Molly-Mandy.



I hope you enjoyed the fashion review. For more vintage loveliness, visit all the blogs on Coloradolady's link list here.

  1. "Small minds seldome differ" I was just thinking of Milly Molly Mandy when I saw the girl in the centre of the 2nd photo. Yes those dresses wouldn't be out of place in my wardrobe today- they look so comfy and practical compared with the Edwardian styles which preceded them.

  9. These patterns are really amazing. I just love the Deco lines and styling. I wish I could make something like them! I still haven't learned to sew- It's on my bucket list.

  17. Aside from the "lingerie" I'd say these illustrations really are quite modern in their design. And a girl would look quite chic wearing anything from this pattern book even in 2010! Happy VTT!

  25. Und wer weiss, irgendwann wird die Mode aus den 20er Jahren vielleicht wieder ganz up to date ;-) ! Auch in der Mode wiederholt sich ja vieles!
