I have a funny little theatrical to share today that originally appeared in McCall’s Magazine, October, 1915.
I originally thought that this might have WWI women’s uniforms, but it’s not about that at all! Very different than what we’d see today, we encounter a sort of history of fashion play- with outraged husbands tired of spending their money and allowances on their wives wardrobes. Remember to read it with a view of the past- I know the attitudes are different than today. But I really think those who love fashion history will get a little kick out of the cute, short play. It might even be kind of fun to re-enact!
Click on each of the images to see the larger version. I left the ads in, too, so you might get a kick out of seeing those.

That’s really fun, thanks for sharing. I love original sources like this. I wonder what Dame Fashion and the other characters would make of modern clothes? The unisex ‘uniform’ of jeans and a t-shirt for example. Writing an updated version would be fun too!

Very cute. I would love to see that acted out. It’s not like we don’t have the people to do the costumes :)

Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would really
like to have you share some stories/information.
I know my readers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to
shoot me an email.
