Fashion Silhouettes Timeline

 1928-1929

Fashion Silhouettes Timeline Drawings 1928-1929

First, I analyzed costume drawings and fashion plates of the fashion history era 1928 to 1929. Then I drew out these simple line drawings and finally improved aspects such as fur trim with Paint Shop Pro.  The drawings on this page show some of the silhouette body shape outline in fashion history between 1928 and 1929.  Each thumbnail enlarges to produce an A4 print and is suitable for colouring in and producing timeline scenes, collage foundation guides or costume guidelines for amateur dramatics.

Like many fashion enthusiasts, on occasions I need a simple fashion history line drawing of a specific year.  These images should give you a clear understanding of the changing lines and variety of silhouettes within a few years. 

On this page look out for the dropped waist bodice, above knee skirt lengths that begin to hesitate and gain illusory length with the addition of flutes and frills. The bodices are still long, but show a slight move upward to the natural waistline and this is emphasised with belts or sashes.  Neckline interest features ties, V necks, scarf or cape effects and trains begin to appear and they elongate the skirt auguring the new longer skirt lengths that feature in the 1930s. In terms of fashion history this was a revolutionary decade.

My original detailed text information on the 1920s can be found in the main section here at Flapper Fashion.  You may also be interested in the link to the Stylish Thirties.
