Weldon's Ladies Journal, March 1911

Fresh from France via eBay - a package of six issues of Weldon's Ladies Journal from 1911.  Here we have the first issue, which is exactly 100 years old:

The front cover illustrates the free patterns given away with the issue: a coat and skirt, a matron's bodice, a cycling skirt, "blue serge knicker[bocker]s for a boy" and a lady's camisole and knickers.

And on the back cover: "Artistic Fashions for the Spring Season" - available as patterns from Weldon's.  Note the narrow skirts and the wide hats - possible THE distinguishing fashion features of the period.
