Hello! Is it really Wednesday already?
Today I’ve got a really great little article to share from McCall’s Magazine from August 1912. I think you’ll get a kick out of this article as much as I have. Some of my favorite illustrators of the Edwardian era are answering the question of women’s dress in “How Can the Woman of Tomorrow Dress More Becomingly.”

Do keep in mind, though I shouldn’t even have to say it since I know most of you are vintage/history buffs and are well aware, that this was written one hundred years ago, when ideas about women, cultures, and society as a whole were very different than how we think today.
