Patterns of the Past -- A Trio of Skirts from 1914


From Needlecraft, June 1914. Skirt on the left, thumbs down. Skirt on the right, thumbs up. Skirt in the middle, looks as though the designer's mother was frightened by a pair of jodhpurs.

The center one - I can't imagine. I guess it might work with my thunder thighs. Oooooo, I still can't imagine. LOL The one on the right is really pretty and practical, as in one could actually move in it.

The silhouette on the left I like a lot, but the top bits should be part of a tunic with a plain slim skirt underneath.

Love your comment about the jodhpurs! That really is an odd looking design for a skirt.

Olivia, these patterns were sold through Needlecraft Magazine back in 1914. You might be able to find it by contacting dealers in antique patterns.
