1925 Spring Easter Fashions-Delineator Magazine

By .

The graphics and fashion illustrations in older magazines are fantastic. Before the age of fashion photography and photoshop, clothing designs for print had to rendered by hand.  Here is a sampling of illustrations for Easter fashions from an April 1925 Delineator Magazine.  And these were all from Butterick patterns, so women could sew up these lovely outfits themselves. Imagine that?

Notice the hemlines. Many people assume all fashions from the 1920s were shorter, like the flapper girls wore. But as you can see, that’s not the case.

Dresses were often a straight, shift style, with a dropped waist.  Skirts often had assymetrical or handkerchief hems.

Can’t  forget the hats! Cloches and wide brimmed were popular. According to the article, popular colors for spring/summer included purple, fuschia, brick, biscuit, powder blue and green, hydrangea pink and blue. The new trimmings were flowers, feather fancies, grosgrain ribbon, ornaments of crystal, marcasite or rhinestones.
