1908 Article, “The Girl Who Makes Her Own Clothes: What to Take in a Suitcase for a Short Trip”

By Jennie Chancey

1908 Travel FeatureThis neat feature tells the traveling lady exactly what she’ll need for a weekend away–including a traveling suit, shirtwaist, evening gown, nightgown, kimono, petticoat, and more. Not only do you get beautiful illustrations of these items, but the article explains exactly what fabrics and trimmings are needed for each. This is a fun look at what the American Edwardian woman considered necessary for a short journey. We’d be hard pressed to fit such a wardrobe into our weekend suitcases!
