Lavish and stunning intiorcacies of desings as seen in the pages of a 1909 issue of Delineator Magazine. Primarily a pattern periodical, Delineator reached a wide array of forward thinking American consumers, intrigue dby style and fashion, yet also attuned to politics, entertainment and the vast social changes of the day. Muckraker and author Theodore Dreiser was at one time, surprisingly enough- the editor.
c. 1909. Dresses with straighter silhouettes, Empire revival with high waistline, fitted sleeves, trains, and wide brimmed hats were popular for evening.
