1917 fashions, advertisements, and articles from The Modern Priscilla – July 1917 issue
Here are some more magazine scans from The Modern Priscilla, July 1917. I really love the late Edwardian fashions of this transitional fashion era between corsets and the flapper girl of the 1920s.
Note the article “Learning to Cook with Marrion Harris Neal” Ices and Desserts, it talks about ice molds made of lead, and that you should offer macaroons at the same time as the icecream, “an item that should not be overlooked by a woman who has no maid”.
The fashions featured in this slim issue were “Smart Dresses of Washable Fabrics” and “Sport Clothes for the Summer Girl”.
