Weldon's Ladies' Journal, April 1911

To kick of April 2011 I bring you a magazine from April 1911!

The magazine enthused:

This season's fashions show a happy mingling of many modes, for instance we have the kimono sleeve, the Japanese sash, the Empire waist, Early Victorian materials, the classic Grecian lines, the harem skirt from the East, the simple gown of Puritan or Quaker make, the muslin fichu of Kate Greenaway's time, to say nothing of all the varied collars, fancy hoods, zouaves and boleros that are already worn.

From the vantage point of a hundred years later the overall "look" is much more apparent than the details.
