This tailored suit is made of soft materials emphasizing feminine charm, forming a typical example of the early 20th century. Women started wearing tailored suits, with designs that were influenced by men's clothing, in the middle of the 19th century as traveling wear or sportswear. At around 1910 they became a popular wardrobe staple. Tailored suits like this item increasingly appeared in the fashion magazines in those days, among gorgeous feminine dresses with frills and laces.
