Around the year 1916, shortly after the Edwardian Era came to a close, fashion was in a state of flux. Women’s clothing styles were finally shifting away from bustles and tight corsets, high necklines and long skirts. Instead, there was more of an emphasis on natural waistlines, fuller — often shorter — skirts, and smaller hats.
Between the covers of this book, you will find 44 coloring pages showing the tea gowns, simple frocks, swimwear and “sport costumes” that were popular in the United States during that simpler time a century ago.
Now, get ready to take a look back to a century ago, and give these clothes the color and verve they have been missing for all of these years.
Note: In keeping with the original designs, the pictures are often very intricate, and there are large areas of shading on certain pages. We chose not to over-simplify the artwork because of the tremendous amount of detail (and personality) that would be lost in the process. Please see below for thumbnails of the images.
