Ten cents got you these patterns in June, 1914, from Needlecraft magazine. If you had to make all of your clothes (except corsets), one-piece patterns like these would be popular. And when laundry day involved removing all ribbons, washing, drying, ironing, and then running the ribbons back through every piece of lingerie, something that would lie flat for the iron was a great time-saver.
This kimono has an unusual cut. It looks like a Poiret evening coat, but it's a bathrobe.
