Early 1900s Summer Fashion Illustrations

These summer fashion illustrations from the July 1913 issue of the Modern Priscilla Magazine show what women wore in the early 1900s, specifically 1913, and what was in style. Fascinating from a fashion history perspective!

Apparently, embroideries were the rule, and placed where there was the smallest excuse for them. This illustration shows three fashionable early 1900s women and a little girl. On the right side is an advertisement for a Venus adjustable dress form. The text includes detailed descriptions and how to order the dress patterns to make the fashions the models illustrated are wearing. 1913 was the middle of the Edwardian period and an interesting time in fashion history!
