1897 Ladies Home Journal Fashion Illustrations

By Jennie Chancey


Here are four fashion illustrations from an 1897 issue of Ladies Home Journal. The wasp waistline of the time is particularly evident in the upper left and lower right illustrations. The first illustration on the lower left is a bit more forward-looking with its “pigeon” bustline, hinting at what would come in the next few years.
