Illustrated Miscellany: 1892 Hat Fashions, Victorian Embroidery, Dressmaking at Home, and other household crafts
This entry is part 11 of 19 in the series The Delineator - January 1892

Wow! These 10 pages of Fashions for January 1892 from the Delineator were truly illustrated miscellany! These include the latest hat fashions of the early 1890s, a discussion and description 0f different kinds of decorative bows, an illustration of a walking skirt and yolk waist, and a very full article on dressmaking at home.

The article about dress making at home described fabrics and decorations for the new bell skirt, fashionable umbrella skirt, and fan back skirt. Also illustrated is a pannier basque, Amy Robsart sleeves, fancy muff, scrap basket, table cover, drapes, and sofa pillows. There’s a even an illustrated cross stitch design for an embroidered misses’ apron.

The last page that I scanned this time was Victorian gentlemen’s fashions, including puff scarves, braces (suspenders), and joinville.

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.
