>Blouses, 1919

>I am getting such a kick out of this catalog from 1919, I just had to share more picture!  My personal favorite is the little sailor blouse.  Any of these strike your fancy?

 
 
 
I’ve been putting up these old catalog scans onto my Flickr account.  I took down my vacation photos to make room!  So feel free to save high res copies for your own inspiration.

    >More late 1910s goodness! Of course, I adore the sailor blouse, but the one in the bottom image (bottom left) is beautiful too. Reminds me of Folkwear's Armistice Blouse pattern…♥ Caseyblog | elegantmusings.com

    >Where are these women's breasts? It's amazing how flat-chested the look was back then.
