I recently acquired a large collection of loose sheets from the Girl’s Own Paper from 1906 and 1907 (Pre-Flora Klickmann era). I think I actually have full issues – I just need to sort them. In the meantime I’ve been having fun with the fashion drawings.
This illustration on what your household staff should wear is particularly timely for this fortnight’s HSF Peasants and Pioneers challenge.
Here is a closer look:
I love the cook’s linen dress, and the parlourmaid’s white batiste apron (very doable, and both aprons are relatively usable in a modern sense).
I also love the idea of a magazine giving fashion advice for the what the well dressed maid should wear!
