Fashion Silhouettes Timeline
Line Drawings for Colouring In
1900 to 1910

Fashion Silhouettes Timeline Drawings 1900 to 1910

First, I analyzed costume drawings and fashion plates of the fashion history era from 1900 to 1910. Then I drew out these simple line drawings and finally improved aspects such as fur trim with Paint Shop Pro. The illustrations show some of the fashion history silhouettes of the first ten years of costume of the early twentieth century. Each thumbnail expands to produce an A4 print and is suitable for colouring in. You could also use the pictures to produce timeline scenes or collage foundation guides.

Like many costume enthusiasts, I'm not crazy about drawing, but there are times when I need a simple line image of a specific year in fashion history. These pictures should give you an understanding of the changing lines and the variety of silhouettes during the Edwardian decade. On this page look out for hems shortening, sleeves widening and narrowing and the skirt moving away from lower fullness to more column like lines about 1908-9.

My original detailed text information on the 1900s can be found in the main section in the Edwardians here.   You may also be interested in the link to Orientalism in Dress and Poiret.
