Dainty Waists in Christmas Boxes, 19-teens Inspiration

Here’s some beautiful inspiration images for you from the nineteen teens.  These images come from an undated National Bella Hess catalog, but the styles put them around 1915-1917, I’m guessing.  The pages advertise “Each Waist in a Christmas Box.”  What a glorious gift these would be! I’d love to find one waiting for me under the Christmas tree!

I must say, I cannot WAIT for Wearing History to delve into 1910s patterns this year!  I know you probably are tired of hearing me say it in every post of this type, but the Edwardian-1910s are truly my favorite era.

Hope you’re having a lovely week, and hope your holiday festivities are much blessed, whatever holiday you’re celebrating :)

    The 1910’s are my favorite too! I’ve dabbled but never get around to making what I really want. Maybe your blog will be what finally gets me focused. You have great taste and vintage style I look forward to your future posts!

    So cute! I love the contrast between the extremely girly faces and the very matronly busts of this period. It always makes my mind twist.
