WWI Fashion- Skirts and Blouses- 1918-1919

Here are a few lovely pages from the John Wanamaker Mail Order Catalog from Fall and Winter 1918-1919.  The first page say “Another Win-the War Catalog!”  The end of war was promptly on its way.  War ended on November 11, 1918.  But the effects of war continued to be felt around the world.

I love the relative simplicity of the skirts, but with interesting details like pockets, belts, and buttons.  It would be easy to add these bells and whistles to a skirt pattern to make it more fun and interesting.

Hope these provide some inspiration for your outfits for the upcoming centennial!
