Description

Before the twentieth century, women’s able-made apparel used to be practically unheard of, and only the rich could manage to pay for to hire somebody to make their clothes. But throughout the 1860s, a pioneering American tailor named Ebenezer Butterick developed simplified patterns that allowed home seamstresses to broaden their wardrobes and get dressed in the Up to date styles. To promote his patterns, Butterick established a semi-annual catalog containing “the Up to date and Reigning Fashions for Ladies’, Misses’, and Children’s Wear.”
Kristina Seleshanko, a noted fashion historian, has selected images from an 1898 issue of The Butterick Publishing Co.’s Metropolitan Fashions to highlight a gorgeous variety of women’s and children’s apparel. The illustrations range from on a regular basis dresses to evening gowns and include lingerie, sportswear, and hats. An Appendix showcases men’s styles as well. Seleshanko’s informative Introduction discusses authentic era attire and explains the catalog’s brand new-day relevance. Costumers, fashion designers, and those interested in the history of style and fashion will appreciate this vast collection.
