1913 Fashion Photos and an Ivory Soap Advertisement

1913 Fashion Photos and an Ivory Soap Advertisement
This entry is part 12 of 14 in the series The Modern Priscilla - July 1913

Isn’t this Ivory Soap ad a classic? “Yes, it will wash if you use Ivory Soap and a little care… Ivory Soap 99.44% pure”.

Following that advertisement is a page of photographs illustrating and describing fashionable embroidered frocks for the summer season. I made a few scans, to make sure that I got all the wording and details! I love the elaborate gowns of eyelet and French embroidery (and a tip from the this page: “We all know that large eyelets are more neatly made if carefully run twice before cutting…”).

About The Author

Jessica Kay Murray

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
