Mid-teens Afternoon Suit

By Jennie Chancey


What a wonderful color! This is an original linen afternoon suit circa 1913-1915. Note all of the marvelous details, including the double peplum, the crisp white linen collar and cuffs and the tailored skirt. This is a “transition” fashion–right between the era of the slim skirt (1911-1913) and the flounced waistline (1914-1917). It looks perfect for an afternoon stroll or a visit with friends at a lovely tearoom in the city. (From the collection of Elizabeth M. Brick)
