This listing is for a PDF reproduction of the October 1927 New Butterick Fashions booklet. Originally a brochure sized booklet, this has been digitized in high resolution for 16 pages of exquisite fashion illustration and roaring 20s design. This booklet includes no actual patterns, but was a catalog of patterns and features:
Accessories Begin Small and Grow in Importance (an editorial commentary on hats and bags) The Ensemble for Autumn and Early Winter with Two Frocks for its Coat In The Evening The New Snug Hip The Coat and Frock of the Fall Ensemble May be of Flared or Straight Persuasion Slim Lines in Flares The Dignified Frock A Glimpse at the Very Young Mode Flared Hemlines and the Slender Silhouette
This booklet would be great for dating vintage patterns, fashion inspiration, design inspiration and domestic history research. This era of fashion illustration is my favorite!
