Fashions for September 1905

Evening Dress

Loretta reports:

Finding color fashion plates online for the Edwardian Era/Belle Époque/Progressive Era has turned out to be a bit trickier than finding color images for the Regency & Romantic eras.

Evening Dress Description
Luckily, The Delineator ( from which I showed you fashions for 1921 here) was in print for quite some time. I returned to it to bring you fashions for 1905—a few years before Downton Abbey's first season, and nearly a decade before the Great War (WWI) changed the world irrevocably.
