This Dollar Download includes two fun features. The first, entitled, “When Buying New Frocks” (ca. 1907-8) is jam-packed with advice for the Edwardian woman seeking to build an appropriate wardrobe on a reasonable budget:

Another short feature, “Fashions for Women of Varied Tastes” (ca. 1909) has also been included and has lots of fun advice for appropriate clothes for many occasions. Fun!
