This vintage magazine advertisement claims that in the spring a woman’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of gowns and that nearly every woman can make her own dresses if she sets her mind to it. Of course the work is wonderfully simplified with the assistance of a Hall’s Bazar Form. The ad is from the June 1892 issue of The Delineator magazine.
Here are black and white clip art versions of the images from the ad: the dress and skirt forms and the woman working with the dress form.
