The Great War Styles Patterns of the 1910s A wonderful mix of the liberated American women's fashions and 'dashing' British military and civilian uniforms Often called The Forgotten Era the Teens bridge the gap between the Edwardians and the Flappers American women's fashions are amazingly soft and informal while the British cling to a formal look We have combined The American Garment Cutter for Women's Garments with British patterns and articles from the West End Gazette to cover all types of clothing for men and women plus British military uniforms and civilian uniforms such as Red Cross policemen chauffeurs etcThere are many fashion illustrations and a department store catalog of 1915
