Reference Book of Women’s Vintage Clothing 1910-1919

Covering the end of the Edwardian era, up to the nineteen twenties, this publication covers items of women’s apparel from 1910-1919. Clothing and accessories are listed alphabetically by chapter and then numerically by year. The fifty-one chapters cover everything from “Aprons” through “Wedding Attire.”

A thirty-one page glossary of clothing terms of the time along with a pronunciation guide and bibliography are also included. This is not a price guide, but rather a reference to help you date your own vintage apparel and research the clothes of the end of the Edwardian era to the beginning of the roaring 1920s.
